CLEVELAND (March 16, 2017) – Help your kids ‘Stay Curious’ over their summer break with engaging, hands-on fun at Great Summer Science Day Camps! Choose from more than 120 camp sessions with dozens of different themes at three different locations.

Science Day Camps offer amazing new challenges and unforgettable adventures for kids in preschool through high school. From Superhero Science and Chemistry Cafe to camps themed around LEGOs, Minecraft and Pokémon, Science Center summer camps offer the perfect combination of problem-solving, critical thinking, excitement and outdoor summer fun. Kids make new friends and form lifelong memories while they build skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).

“Your kids are already naturally curious about the world around them,” says Science Center President and CEO Kirsten Ellenbogen. “Our camps give that curiosity a little focus with fun ways to think creatively, solve problems and explore favorite topics in a whole new way. We want them to go home every day from camp excited to tell their parents what they’ve learned, and be excited to come back the next.”

Science Center camps are accredited by the American Camp Association so you can be assured that your camper will enjoy a safe, quality experience with camp instructors who are professional teachers, scientists and engineers.

Science Day Camps begin June 5 at Great Lakes Science Center, June 12 at Laurel School in Shaker Heights, and June 19 in Westlake.

Discounts are available for multi-week registration and siblings. The Science Center offers need-based scholarships as well, which allow us to provide summer day camp opportunities to underserved youth.

Camps sell out quickly, so register soon. For more information and to register: 216-621-2400 or
