Summer camps at the Western Science Center begin June 10th! Online registration is now open - join us for our fun and hands-on summer camps! From paleontology to engineering, kids will have the chance to learn in a unique museum setting.
Session 1: June 10th - 14th
Small Hands Camp (Grades K-1) @ 9AM
A perfect camp for the curious young scientist! Each day campers will explore science through hands-on experiments, crafts, stories and games.
Daily themes include exploring colors, looking at opposites with some help of our Ice Age animals, learning about the natural world around us, exploring our five senses, and the science behind bubbles and water! Will be the same as last couple of years.
Session 2: June 17th - 21st
A Little Messy Camp (Grades 1st - 3rd) @ 9AM
Little messes for little ones! This camp is toned-down version of our Messerific! Camp with a little bit of ooey goey and whole lot of mess-making on a smaller scale for the younger kids.
Know Your Systems: Dissection Lab (Grades 5th - 8th) @ 9AM
Students will learn about major organ systems through dissection of a fetal pig, supplemented with experiments, investigations, and model construction.
Jr. Engineering Camp (Grades 1st - 3rd) @ 12:30 PM
Design, build and create with this fun camp! Jr. Engineers will discover the science behind different fields of engineering through hands-on activities and engineering challenges.
Session 3: June 24th - 28th
Messy Camp (Grades 3rd - 5th) @ 9AM
Ok, we know the word is made up, but what better way to describe this terrific and messy camp! Have fun while getting creative. From splat painting to snack food towers, this camp will be Messerific!
Inventor's Workshop (Grades 3rd - 5th) @ 12:30 PM
Discover your own inventor’s spark in this Inventor’s Workshop. Hands-on activities, games and daily invention challenges will make for a fun week of engineering and imagination!
