“Our camp program is divided by grades so we can offer the appropriate level of education – from building a science foundation for the littlest ones, to re-engaging interest in scientific curriculum with hands-on, practical applications for our older campers,” said Whitney Owens, vice president of education at Great Lakes Science Center. “However, no matter the campers’ age, we strive to teach science in a rich way that inspires our youth to get excited about and engage with science throughout their lives – that is our goal.”
Cost varies per camp and discounts are available for Great Lakes Science Center Members, multiple-week registrations and siblings. You may register by calling 216-621-2400 (Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm) or visiting http://www.greatscience.com/ and clicking on “Summer Camps.”
