"Science is Everywhere" Summer Camp 2019

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History will host "Science is Everywhere" Summer Camps for children who are in grades Pre-K and Kindergarten to 7th grade. These themed, week-long camps will take place May 28 - August 9, 2019, and they are designed to be both highly educational and fun for all. Sessions include "Foodie Science", "STEMinists: Geosciences Edition", Got Game?", "Movie Magic" and many more!  

The July 8-12 camp "Exhibit Takeover" has been changed to a one week camp (not two as previously listed).  This exciting camp is for students who will be in grades 6-7 next August.  

The July 15-19 Exhibit Takeover camp has been cancelled.  Campers may register for the camp "Foodie Science" now open to students who will be in grades 4-7 next August.

If a camp is closed, please call 245-2137, extension 101, to be added to a waitlist.

Register today, as camps are filling up fast!

The museum will be implementing a Camper Code of Conduct for the summer of 2019. Parents and guardians will receive a copy of the camper code of conduct to review with their camper a week before their child’s camp begins.


Due to the prevalence and severity of allergies among our campers, the Museum is implementing a strict "NO NUTS" policy. With every camper's utmost safety in mind, it is now a requirement that campers may not bring any nut products (tree nuts or peanuts) in their lunches, and all planned activities throughout every camp session will not include nuts.
