Experience One-Day Camps for Kids Ages 6-12

The Summer 2023 Camp Guide is available for download. Registration opens soon!

Register your child for a Friday Fun Day camp, or a One-Day camp during July 4th week.  In addition to hands-on activities with our STEM focus, campers enjoy museum exploration, outdoor games, and a pizza lunch.

Featuring weekly themes such as Extreme Cardboard Castles, Roller Coasters and Marble Games, or LEGO City, these one-day camps are great as stand-alone experiences or as additions to your child’s week of camp with us.
