Summer STEM Camps

What Are You Doing This Summer?

We know that the next few months are uncertain for you and your family and your summer plans may have needed to change. But, The Lancaster Science Factory is preparing and planning for a safe and fun summer camp season.
Just as you’ve trusted us to provide educational STEM camps for the past decade, you can trust us this year to also provide:
  • Safe curbside check-in – You’ll be met in our loading zone by a clearly identified LSF staff member or volunteer. No need to get out of the car or come inside. Your child will be escorted safely into the building.
  • Temperature checks – Our staff will screen all campers with a no-touch thermometer before they enter the facility. No one with a temperature of 100.4 or over will be permitted to enter.
  • Reduced camp sizes to accommodate physical distancing requirements – Social distancing really means PHYSICAL distancing. We will provide a place for your child to have social interaction in a safe way. All campers will have their own space and materials which will be sanitized after each use.
  • Rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures – We are going above and beyond our normal cleaning routines both in the classroom and in the exhibit hall. The Lancaster Science Factory uses commercial cleaning products provided by Cintas. 
  • Hand washing breaks and extra hand sanitizer – We’re fully stocked with sanitizer and all campers will be given the opportunity to wash their hands as needed.
  • Compliance with all mask wearing requirements – all staff, volunteers, and visitors will be required to wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth.
  • Clean and ample personal space for full-day campers having lunch – Full day options are still available! Campers staying for lunch will have space for physical distancing while eating.
