Let us put you at the center of science this summer!

At the Michigan Science Center, we put your child at the center of science!
Whether it’s controlling the forces of nature or investigating how math impacts our world, kids will be inspired to discover new things in a safe and engaging environment.

Campers will explore MiSci’s 220+ interactive exhibits, engage in immersive theater experiences, and investigate science phenomena through hands-on activities and experiments.

Registration is Open!

Each week will center on a different theme, with activities tailored to each age group. Camp is for learners entering grades 1st-5th and will run 9am-4pm every day. Before and After care is available for a nominal fee, and a snack will be provided at the end of the day; campers are expected to come with a packed lunch and a water bottle. Sunscreen labeled with your child’s name is also highly recommended.

COVID-19 Precautions: Campers and staff will be required to wear face masks at all times and hand sanitizer will be provided. We will also provide individual craft supplies to each camper for their personal use during the week. We will be splitting campers into groups to allow extra space for social distancing.
The Michigan Science Center operates in accordance with State of Michigan Pandemic Preparedness & Response Plan requirements, and adheres to all Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Emergency Orders for pandemic safety, including daily employee health screenings & pre-visit temperature checks for museum guests and campers, nose-and-mouth-covering mask requirements, and capacity and physical distancing restrictions. The Michigan Science Center works with the National Sanitation Foundation International and is CHECKED by NSF™. While an inherent risk of contagious illness exists in any public space, the Michigan Science Center is committed to creating a safe and enriching summer experience!
