Welcome to Camp Curiosity Summer Camp for kids entering grades K-3!

All camp sessions have been designed with your child's health and safety in mind. All campers and staff are required to wear facemasks and undergo a daily health screening. All materials and workspaces are sanitized before and after each use and classes use a dedicated space with access to hand washing and sanitizer stations. Social distancing measures are closely followed with small class sizes separated by age, and camp activities are tailored for each age group.

2022 K-3 Summer Camp Sessions

June 6, 2022 – June 10, 2022

LEGO Engineers
Attention all builders! Get creative with LEGO® bricks while exploring science, technology, engineering and math concepts in three-dimensions. Experiment with color, patterns, geometry and physics through dozens of play-based design challenges. Based on content from LEGO® Education.

June 20, 2022 – June 24, 2022

Budding Biologists
What can insects and animals teach us about math, engineering and science? Join us to learn about bugs, birds, mammals and more. Learn how fish gills work, identify bird calls, and explore insect mimicry. Discover the many ways scientists borrow inspiration from nature while innovating—then do some animal-inspired engineering of your own!

July 25, 2022 – July 29, 2022

The Art of Science
Full STEAM ahead! We're creating art with the help of science, technology, engineering and math. How can machines help us craft creative masterpieces? What's the chemistry behind common colors? Join us for a week full of fun-filled, hands-on experiments to find out!

Register

August 1, 2022 –August 5, 2022

Crazy Coasters
Explore the laws of physics while creating your own theme park! Engineer rides that can spin, rock, roll and turn. Experiment with simple machines, craft a marble run rollercoaster to explore Newton's laws, design and play your own carnival games, tackle mini challenges, and more. Campers will also take a special field trip to Cedar Point this week to explore the science behind real-world rides and games!
