Middle school kids at summer camp making solar ovens using shoe box and aluminum foilSummer Camps

The planetarium offers hands-on, engaging camps for kids entering grades 2-4, 5-6 and 7-9. Kids explore, experiment, plan and problem solve, building critical thinking skills that build a foundation to excel. But they just think they're having fun!

"The kids LOVED the experience and definitely want to return next year. They readily woke up, prepared for the day (packed their own lunch, etc.), and were ready to go to camp every morning...and always had cool-awesome-wonderment stories to tell at pickup and on the ride home." Lee B.
