This camp is made possible thanks in part to the guidance of Back Alley Bikes (BAB) and with contributions from Detroit Eastside Community Collaborative (DECC).


  • Campers should bring a lunch.
  • Both camps include exploration time in our 250+ hands-on exhibits, live stage shows, planetarium and IMAX® experiences, and our Creatures of Light special exhibit.
  • Costs are offset by DECC, The STEMinista Project grant, and Sponsors of Science (SOS).
