Camp in a Box

Unpack the Science!

Now extended through August
Monday - Friday
For ages 6 years and up

We've heard rave reviews of our camps so that's inspired us to add more of them through August!

These dynamic hands-on sessions are the best of both worlds - digital and IRL so your child won’t be glued to a device screen all day!

In fact, you’ll get an exciting kit bursting with a multitude of hands-on activities that will keep your child immersed in all things STEM, all day long.

Each session include the fun camp kit, virtual social time with other campers, and a special lunchtime guest who will share expertise about the camp topic.
