Summer Camp 2018


Each session is a hands-on adventure with learning activities in our science classrooms, at our spectacular marine exhibits, in our bigger-than-life educational IMAX® movies, and – for some programs – during excursions to the beach or aboard our unique new research vessel. We’ll show campers the fun side of science.
