Join us for a summer filled with science and fun at the Michigan Science Center!

Camp hours: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Campers may be dropped off and picked up 15 minutes before camp starts or after camp ends at no additional charge.  If you need to drop off your campers earlier or pick them up later, we offer Before and After Care services for a nominal fee.

Before Care: 8 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.
After Care: 4:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

Campers must bring their own lunch, or they may purchase a lunch at the Cosmic Cafe*. A snack will be provided at the end of the day. Campers will receive a camp t-shirt on the day of their field trip.

*Lunch time can be very busy during high traffic days, so a packed lunch is ideal.
