Summer Camp schedules have been released! 

Our children’s programs are founded on experiential learning and national STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) standards. At the SDC we take STEM a step further and make it STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and Mathematics) because we believe that you need to include the creative element for a comprehensive educational experience. We tap into your child’s curiosity with fun and exciting hands-on activities taught by qualified professionals.

SDC Summer Camp 2022

May 31-June3
Buggin’ Out

Join us as we explore the world of creepy crawlers. We will learn how insects provide natural services for us that we take for granted.  They are pollinators, undertakers, decomposers, garbage collectors, and natural fertilizers of our planet.  This week we will learn about different types of bugs, study their importance, and meet many cool and creepy, crawly critters.

June 6-10

Budding artists will explore individual artistic ability and will be encouraged to be creative. Various art methods will be demonstrated and by week-end they will create a masterpiece!

June 13-17
Kitchen Science

Ewwww!  Yuck!  What’s that smell?  There is no place better than the Science and Discovery Center to experiment and learn about Science! Little scientists will experiment with kitchen ingredients and explore the results.   

June 20-24
Ahoy Ye, Pirates & Mermaids

For hundreds of years pirates sailed the salty seas looking for treasures.  This week we will learn about the oceans, decode a pirate map, plan for a voyage, discuss how pirates survived on the water, and explore the truth of mermaids.  Further, we will explore the underwater sea life and have special visitors.  

June 27 – July 1
Reptiles & Amphibians

Scaly and slimy doesn’t have to mean scary!  Reptiles and amphibians are some of the most misunderstood animals in the animal kingdom.  Join us for a week of meeting our own reptile ambassadors in person, and discovering the reason for their spikes, slime and all the other features that make them so unique and interesting. 

July 11-15
Wizards, Spells, & Fairy Tales

Enjoy a week of spells and fairy tales. Collect your wand and broom to begin exploration of the same subjects Harry Potter learned:  Herbology, how to care for Magic Creatures, charms and potions, and art.  Participate in the creation of magical spells and potions. Our pre-k groups will explore storytelling and magic kingdoms.

July 18-22
Dino Dig

Welcome all future Paleontologists! This week will be fun packed with Dinosaurs.  Our researchers will learn about different types of dinosaurs, create fossils, make volcanoes erupt, and practice their paleontology skills in our Dino Dig.

July 25-29
Barnyard Palooza

Learn about life on a farm and what role farm animals have.  Throughout this week, kids don’t just learn about the animals, they interact with them!  This week will have many animal visitors to make this learning experience more memorable.
