It’s That Time of the Year!

School’s out, but don’t let the learning end! With new adventures each day, you can roll up your sleeves and build like an engineer, put on your goggles and mix up a few concoctions, and get to know a few new animal friends. Our Winter Camp will run Monday through Thursday and is for kids age 5–11 (children are grouped by grade K–1, 2–3, and 4–6).

Registration Dates:
