Summer Camps at the Science Museum of Western Virginia encourage hypothesis testing, problem solving, and teamwork to complete hands-on science challenges.

Summer Camps 2020

Summer Camp registration opens on March 1st with the release of our full 2020 Summer Camp Program list! Follow us on social media, or sign up to our newsletter, for more information over the coming weeks.

The Science Museum of Western Virginia offers fully hands-on camps in a variety of STEM subjects. Some of our programs even include visits to local higher education institutions to offer campers the opportunity to set foot on a university or college campus and in doing so increases their chance of pursuing higher education.

Science-based Summer Camps are essential in maintaining STEM skills that are developed throughout the school term and often deplete over summer break. Attending fun and engaging Summer Camps results in marked improvements across all STEM subjects when they return to school! Additionally, Summer Campers gain key skills, such as team work and confidence, that are retained for their future careers.
