Camp

 

The Da Vinci Science Center offers week-long day camps in the summer and single-day camps during holiday breaks. Young people enjoy a world of playful hands-on adventure that inspires campers to think creatively, be curious, and learn through their own observations and discoveries.

Summer Camp

Week-long Summer Camp sessions take place from the third week in June through the third week of August. These camps are for boys and girls entering preschool – grade 8. Morning Sessions are held Monday – Friday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m., and afternoon Sessions are held Monday – Friday from 1-4 p.m.

2018 Summer Camp details coming soon.

School’s Out Day Camps

Single-day Holiday Camp sessions take place in the fall, winter, and spring and are available for boys and girls in grades K-5. Each day will be filled with fun, hands-on holiday-themed science experiments and memory making experiences. Save $5 on every Day Camp when you register for more than one during the same transaction!

Food Science Day Camp- Friday, November 24

To celebrate our tastiest holiday, we’ll explore food science! We’ll investigate the structures of food, like proteins and acids, while making and tasting them ourselves.  Activities include making cheese, super-taster tongue testing, and using food to generate electricity! See more

Fling It, Fly It, & Eat It Day Camp- Monday, November 27

Food isn’t just for eating; it’s also for fun! We’ll explore physics by shooting carrots out of cannons, launching marshmallows from catapults, having target practice, and more! See more

Sugary Concoctions Day Camp- Tuesday, December 26

We’re using candy to learn about science, math, and engineering! We’ll explore different qualities of candy such as density, structures, polymers, and more. Then we’ll use that knowledge to make some of our own candy! Can slime be edible? We’re going to find out during the Sugary Concoctions Day Camp! See more

Chocolate and Ice Cream- Wednesday, December 27

What goes together better than chocolate and ice cream? Science and chocolate and ice cream! We’ll be using science to make our own ice cream and our own magic chocolate topping too! Plus, who will win our own mini Ice Cream War…? See more

Sweet Tooth Creations- Thursday, December 28

During this camp, we’re learning from an actual sweet tooth professional about how candy is made! Then we’ll use candy for some of our own sweet experiments to learn more about our favorite food! Why does candy look, taste, and work the way it does? See more

Candy Construction- Friday, December 29

We’ll finish candy camp with a ginger bread house competition, making marshmallows, and building our own candy dispensers! We’re also testing our tongues! Why do candies taste so good? Who has the best taste buds? See more
