"Science is Everywhere" Camps

Summer Camps
Postponed - Start Date TBD

We have made the very difficult decision to cancel the beginning half of our "Science is Everywhere" summer camps that run May 26 - July 3. We will continue to watch community restrictions as we phase back into opening to the public, and we will know in the coming weeks what the final part of our summer programming will look like.
