The health and safety of our campers is always our first priority. Summer Camps at Da Vinci Science Center have extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year. 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 week-long and single-day summer camps 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.
