Summer Science Camp

 

 

 

Science Camp offers your child an exciting opportunity to explore the world around us!

Campers entering grades 1-5 will experience a different science theme, consisting of three activities, each day. We will engage in tons of exciting experiments that will be sure to entice the curious mind of your budding scientist.

"Water, Water Everywhere" is the theme for rising Kindergartners. They will discover the wonders of water in our bodies, in the ground, in the air and more.

All camps are hands-on, and emphasize active learning and fun. Science Camp is comprised of eight one-week sessions, running from June 11 through August 3. Due to the popularity of the program and limited number of spaces, each child will only be permitted to attend one session of science camp per summer.

Registration for residents will begin Monday, March 5. Registration for non-residents will begin Monday, March 19. Register in person at the Sugar Sand Park Community Center front desk, or online through WebTrac.

Note: If you are not already a WebTrac user, you will have to register in person.

Cost: $107.00 - Residents (Registration begins March 5); $134.00 - Non-residents (Registration begins March 19)

Time: 9am-1pm daily. Extension programs are available through the Sugar Sand Park Community Center.
