Aspiring astronauts, scientists and engineers ages 8-18 will have a "blast" at the award-winning Challenger Learning Center where they can explore space, science, art, and technology through simulated space missions and other out-of-this-world activities.
Space adventurers can travel to the Moon or Mars, explore Comets, or train in an underwater environment in SCUBA gear. Future engineers can design, build and inhabit a life-size lunar colony or build remote-controlled rovers and rockets with 3D printed parts. Specialty camps include: Astronaut Training Camp, Rocket Lab, Innovator's Workshop, and NEW: Drone Makers Camp, and Artemis Adventure Camp!
Camp Lakewood Open Houses are designed to give you and your children or teens the opportunity to meet the camp directors, ask questions and see the beautiful property. You'll get a tour of the camp, be able to speak with camp staff and be reassured that your camper will have the experience of a lifetime at YMCA Camp Lakewood.
Parents call it a break from the kids, and kids call it a break from parents, so its a win-win for all! During Parents' Survival Night you can spend some adult time seeing a movie or catching up with friends, while your kids get quality "kid time" in a safe, familiar, and fun place with trained instructors who lead them through music, games and fun LEGO, DUPLO and LEGO Junior building activities.
Featuring real puppets created by the Henson Creature Shop, Splash and Bubbles: Dive In, Lend a Fin! takes children on an underwater adventure to learn about the ocean and what they can do to help protect it.
