Rockin' Reviews

"My 7-year-old son has been attending science summer camp at the museum for 6 weeks and he absolutely loves it. Every week has a different theme and he’s made a lot of new friends. I love that the counselors are very attentive and seem to enjoy their jobs. We’ll definitely be coming back next summer!"

"After attending tech camp, my daughter now has a love for learning she never had before and feels more confident with new things."

"Science Center Camp offers a perfect mix of fun and learning! Both of our kids loved the outdoor and indoor exhibit exploration and the weekly themed science lessons."
