Spend the night at the Science Center!

Have you ever had so much fun at the Science Center that you didn't want to leave? Why leave? Join us for an overnight camp-in and explore the Science Center all night long!

Upcoming Camp-ins

February 12th - Brownie and Junior Camp-in

 Investigate stop-motion animation using computers and explore the science behind 3-D printing. Become a Maker and tap into your own creativity as you build, design and create your own inventions! Questioning, testing, even sometimes failing are important steps in the building process.  

Join us at the Saint Louis Science Center for these fun over-night camp-ins where everyone is an Inventor, Maker, Tinkerer and Tester. Activities will partially fulfill requirements for several badges! 

At least one adult chaperone is required for every five campers under 18 years old. Enrollment is $45 per participant. Visit slsc.org/camp-ins for more information or call 314-289-4424 to reserve your spot today!
