Science Fun Days

Nov. 23 and 26

These one-day experiences are modeled after our popular Parents' Night Out program. Campers (ages 4-10) will play in the exhibits, see a live theater show or laser show, participate in a one-hour workshop, plus see an Omnimax movie. It's a great alternative to day care.

Plus, don't miss these Holiday Camps in December...
