Spring Break Camp Curiosity 2018

Great Lakes Science Center is introducing a brand new take on camp programs for the 2018 school year – Camp Curiosity! Beginning April 2, we have five different themes for kids K-8th grade grade to choose from! All camps are separated by age, and curriculum content is tailored to the age group. Your camper can choose one day of adventure or multiple days for a STEM filled journey during their spring break. Spring break camps are $55 per day ($50 for members) and run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with an option for an extended day from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for an additional fee. Registration is available online at GreatScience.com or by calling 216-621-2400.

Earth is full of powerful forces - how can we use engineering to capture these natural resources? Use problem solving skills to capture the wind, snatch up the sun and round up the rumbling of the earth. Spend the day understanding all the planet has to offer and how humans can use these resources to make our lives better. Enjoy the movie "Amazon Adventure" in the DOME Theater. Register here.
