Mini Camps in Your Community

We are excited to offer new camps at various locations in NWA! These offsite camps will foster new curiosities and discoveries about the world around us as we use science as a tool for exploring that world. In these child drop-off camps, campers explore the concepts of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through creative, hands-on explorations. Advanced registration and payment required.

Blanket forts are great, but what if there are no blankets? This camp puts your creativity and inventiveness to the test. Just like a chopped challenge, not only will you have unconventional materials to work with, you also have to overcome twists and turns we throw at you along the way. Can you overcome all the obstacles to create an amazing fort?
