Science Day Camps

Waiting lists open for summer camps.

We offer three one-day summer camps for ages 8 to 11: Dinosaur Detectives on Monday June 5, Space Odyssey on Wednesday June 7, and Aquatic Biology on Friday June 9.

Participants explore science and nature through demonstrations, hands-on activities, and experiments in the museum and out in the field. For more information, visit our camps page or call 785-864-4173.  Scholarships are available.
