- $149 for a five-week Science Exploration day camp ($300 value)
This K–5th grade camp runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday. This Groupon is valid for the June 16–July 14 camp session. Campers will be introduced to science with a variety of hands-on activities, including building model erupting volcanoes, examining live insects, and making "vampire slime".
It’s hard to find quicksand in most residential neighborhoods, but luckily, in WOW Camps’ Science Exploration sessions, kids learn to make their own—along with slime, flubber, and various other goops. They don’t just create fun and disgusting substances that could be found on a sci-fi film set or inside that ominous shed grandpa forbids anyone to go into, though—they also learn the science behind chemical reactions and compounds. This blend of education and play characterizes the entirety of WOW Camps’ eclectic lineup of day programs, which range from science- and tech-focused curriculums to creative writing camps that boost language skills.
