Choose from the following sessions:

Camps run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday–Friday. Each day of camp includes trips to four science stations, with breaks for snacks and outdoor games, lunch, creative challenges, and water-based activities. In Wacky Mega-Bot Tech, campers build and compete with their own 12-inch robot. In the Crazy Coaster Science & Sea-Fari Park, kids work with physics to build model roller coasters, then delve into an exploration of ocean life and get up close and personal with a live shark. The Ultimate Survival Zone camp challenges participants to create their own electric walking chameleons, grow a model of the human brain, and extract real DNA. See a sample camp itinerary here.

Destination Science

Design a digital rock dock station. Create a chameleon. Build and race an all-terrain robot. Taste the food that astronauts eat. The children who engage in these once-in-a-lifetime activities at Destination Science camps aren't just having fun—they're learning science. At 22 camp locations in four states, counselors lead campers ages 5 to 11 through a full week of hands-on exploration in various disciplines. Aided by kid-friendly tools, entertaining demonstrations, and inventive lesson plans, they teach campers the basics of scientific inquiry through the fun of exploration and experimentation. The four main camps focus on topics ranging from human and marine biology to astronomy, engineering, and physics, often with engaging games and hands-on projects. All of Destination Science's instructors are experienced educators and university students, each focused in the sciences and chosen for their ability to relate to children and build an effective baking-soda volcano.
