Because they are short and sweet and you can register for single or multiple days, these mini-camps are perfect for kids who are too young for our regular camps or who have never attended full day, week long camps before.

Your new campers will get to experience what Summer Science Camp is all about in short sessions where they will be engaged and entertained with hands-on activities, games, art projects, new friends, and more all while learning the ropes of camp!

Weather permitting, campers will spend the majority of their time outdoors.

Ages: 4 to 7

Times: Camps run from 9 am to 12 noon. We can not offer pre or post camp care at this time.
