Summer STEM Camps

What Are You Doing This Summer?

The Lancaster Science Factory has been offering Summer Camps for more a decade. In 2019, we’re celebrating by offering 28 unique, weeklong camps for kids of all ages and interests.


SUMMER STEM CAMPS: Kids who have completed Kindergarten – 8th grade will have a blast at any of our 18 engaging and unique STEM camps. Become a Mathemagician, paint a STEM-themed mural, build a bridge, get messy with FrankenSLIME, and so much MORE! Campers who are registered for both morning and afternoon camps can pack a lunch and stay all day!


MAKER CAMPS: This year we’re adding even more fun with 8 brand new camps in our Maker Space! Campers will have immersive experiences in topics like robotics, woodworking, electrical engineering, environmental engineering, and more! Maker camps are held from 9am – 12pm and campers who are registered for an afternoon STEM camp may pack a lunch and stay all day!
