​Camp Curiosity: Winter Break Camps

Get the kids to put down their screens and gadgets over winter break with a hands-on, interactive Camp Curiosity science camp at Great Lakes Science Center!

The Science Center has six different themes for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade to choose from, featuring everything from engineering to chemistry, and physics to robots!

All camps are separated by age, and camp activities are tailored for each age group. Your camper can choose one day of adventure, or multiple days for a STEM-filled journey during their winter school break. Campers can experiment with chemical reactions, practice problem-solving with robots, learn how to protect our Great Lake, build a rocket, put physics into motion, and get hands-on with fabrication technology. 

Winter break camps are $55 per day ($50 for Science Center members) and run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with options for before-care from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and after-care from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for an additional fee. Sign up for all six days of camp and receive a $30 discount. Boxed lunches are available for pre-order as well for $7.50 each day. Registration is available online at GreatScience.com or by calling 216-621-2400.
