The health and safety of our campers is always our first priority. In-Person Summer Camps at Da Vinci Science Center have extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year. This summer, in light of COVID-19, the Da Vinci Science Center team is updating these procedures extensively, informed by current recommendations from local, state, and federal health officials, agencies and authorities, including CDC guidelines.

Give your child the super powers of science.
Join us for in-person summer camp at Da Vinci Science Center. Experienced educators lead hands-on science activities that inspire campers to think creatively, be curious, and learn through their own observations and discoveries.
Campers will make new friends, develop lifelong critical thinking skills, and totally have the most fun with science.
Expedited pick-up and drop-off is included in the purchase of every in-person camp. Parents and guardians will no longer need to park their cars and walk into the building to get campers to or from their labs, but rather will be met in the drop-off/pick-up lane by a staff member.
Registration can be cancelled or transferred with a full refund/no charge up to 14 days prior to the start of camp, which is a change to the standard policy (usually required 3+ weeks in advance). We recognize that these are difficult times, yielding unpredictable situations. We are happy to work with you.
Race It, Fling It, Fly It | $165

Take a trip with us through land, air, and sea to learn just how many ways people can travel from place to place. Learn the ins and outs of locomotion by exploring the engineering behind movement. Campers will design and experiment with various modes of transportation such as planes, trains, and cars. Push the limits to discover how far, fast, and high you can go!
My Big Backyard | $165

You don’t have to travel very far to explore science. There are so many interesting things to discover in our very own backyards! In this week of camp, we will learn how we can use our observation and investigative skills to study everything from insects and animals to plants and weather. Campers will leave with the ability to continue their scientific discoveries at home.
Over the Rainbow | $155
July 5-9 or July 12-16, AM sessions
July 19-23 or July 26-30, PM sessions
There is so much to discover about the world of color. We will explore how our eyes see different colors and even learn about some “colors” we cannot see. Each camper will get a chance to perform different hands-on activities to help them discover how to make all the colors of the rainbow (and more) by mixing primary colors – with paint and light.
Dig Into Dinos | $155

It’s time to make some dino discoveries! Join us for a week of excavation exploration as we uncover some of the secrets of these prehistoric creatures. What did they look like? What did they eat? When exactly did they live? Investigate all of this and more, all while having fun and forming new friendships. Campers get VIP access to Expedition Dinosaur: Rise of the Mammals, a special exhibition here for a limited time!
Code It, Create It | $165

Does your little learner love playing with technology and exploring the latest apps? Help them to prepare for life in the 21st century as we investigate computers, complete coding challenges, and program robots! This week, we’ll engage in a healthy mix of on-screen and “unplugged” activities that develop your child’s problem-solving skills and build a strong foundation for their high–tech future.
