New Summer Science Adventure Camps

Looking for a quality, safe and affordable summer experience for your children? Look no further.  Clark Planetarium and Discovery Gateway have partnered to offer you a great value for your child’s summer camp experience.

Our new Summer Science Adventure Camps give kids hands-on training that will inspire teamwork, creativity and innovation.  Campers  will be challenged to see the world differently whether it is looking at something a thousand times smaller than the diameter of a human hair, or larger than galaxies in the universe.  The three day camp experience will be jam packed with activities, games, and fun filled experiences that you will cherish for years to come.

What will be offered?

Adventure begins with Clark Planetarium’s Space Adventure Workshop.  Campers will be familiarized with astronomy, rocket propulsion and planetary exploration.  Campers will also participate in the Great Balloon Rocket Race, build launch straw rockets and leave with their own UV detection bracelet.  Then, the adventure continues at Discovery Gateway where campers will become official Discovery Gateway Curious Science Investigators.  As a CSI, kids investigate the basics of chemistry, learn to ask scientific questions and conduct their own scientific experiments.  Campers will learn the mysteries of M & M’s, identify colorful crystals and experiment with chemical change.

  1. 4th grade boy, older for his grade, year round school, very ‘scientific’ if you will, could he attend the july camp?

  2. Hi Kristin,

    The camp age groups are based off what grade the child will be attending in the fall. If he will be in 5th grade in the fall, he can attend the July 13 – 15 camp. If you have additional questions, please contact our reservations department at 801-456-4979.
