Young Scientists Camp

Summer Science Camp for Students in Grades 2-8

Get Ready for Summer 2022!

Camp will run Monday-Friday, 8:30am-12:00pm, July 18-29, 2022.

We are very excited to be able to offer Young Scientists Camp (YSC) for this summer. We look forward to doing science with your kids!

We will be following all campus and state/local guidelines regarding COVID. Please note that as health guidelines change, so too will our requirements. The YSC staff will let you know how we will proceed as we get closer to the start of camp.

Don't Delay! Seats for the 2nd, 3rd/4th, 5th/6th, and 7th/8th Grade sections of camp are already sold out. Seats for physics science for high school girls are still available. Please email if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
