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.
SCIENCE THAT STICKS FOR CAMPERS 4-6: Our ever-popular PASTE (Pre-Kindergarteners Active in Science and Technology Exploration) series returns the week of June 10th – 16th. Your littlest scientist can join us for a fun, hands-on, and sometimes messy camp meant to engage their curiosity. Click here to learn more about these and register!
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!
