Camp Descriptions

Energy Excitement

Get energized!

Discover different ways to create and harness energy, and how to conserve this valuable resource. Explore thermal, wind, solar, and kinetic energy through hands-on experiments and demonstrations.

There’s No Place Like Space

3…2…1…Blast Off!

Get ready to rocket into orbit and explore things that are out of this world. While visiting the Science Center’s James S. McDonnell
Planetarium, learn why our Sun is so important, discover the planets of our solar system and investigate what makes each one unique.

Science SmARTS

Get messy while making masterpieces!

Investigate the science behind pigments, perspective, and paper. Make your own works of art from amazing science experiments. You can’t be smart without art!

Science FUNdamentals

Get ready to have fun with science!

Witness amazing chemical reactions that create bubbles, slime and strange color changing liquids. Develop skills such as observation, measuring and curiosity as we experiment with the fundamentals of science!

Dare to Dig NEW


Dig up the scientific secrets behind archaeology, paleontology and entomology. Use science to decode clues and piece together the puzzles of the past.

Dino Discovery


Explore ancient worlds and unearth what it takes to be a paleontologist! From mini excavations to exploring real dinosaur bones, dig into the past to find out all about those great creatures that once walked the Earth.

Eco-Explorers

Venture into the science of nature and biology!

Grow an ecosystem in a jar, find patterns outside and start your own garden. Discover how different cultures use natural materials to create practical and beautiful treasures.

Science Makes Sense


Delve into how we experience with our world as we play with our five senses. Mystify our eyes with optical illusions, test the basics of balance, and put our noses to the test. See how our brain and body work together through our senses!
