Welcome to Camp Curiosity for summer 2020

The STEM HQ staff at Great Lakes Science Center is ready to welcome everyone back to Camp Curiosity this summer!  New this year, for our K-8 campers we are offering both @Home and @GLSC camp experiences to best fit the needs of your family.  Both options have been designed with your child's health and safety in mind.  We have an individualized adventure available for your child that is also convenient for you, whether you're working from home, or back to commuting.

Every one of the previously scheduled summer day camps for kids in grades K-8 will have a corresponding home version.

Each camper will need access to an Internet-connected device (phone, tablet, or laptop), but the @Home camp is a two-way experience.  The Science Center will not be parking your camper in front of a screen for an entire week.  There will be breakout rooms so campers can collaborate safely and effectively, and counselors will be online throughout the day.

Virtual campers will receive their own set of materials that is specifically designed for their camp.  Materials can be picked up at the Science Center and loaded into your car by a staff member.  Once camp ends, the nonconsumable materials provided can be dropped back off at the Science Center, or can be shipped to and from your house.

Summer camps on-site @GLSC will be adapted as well, with reduced class sizes for appropriate social distancing, daily sanitizing procedures and health screenings.  And, all campers (both virtual and on site) will receive a washable Camp Curiosity face mask.

Both the @Home and @GLSC camp options begin June 1.  Please email [email protected] with any questions or for more information on how the Science Center is working to make your child’s camp experience special and safe!
