Nutty Scientists of St. Louis camps are an innovative form of "edutainment" (entertainment + education). Combining fun with learning, each camp contains an educational theme that keeps children engaged from day to day. One new theme is learned each day, and all activities are related to this theme, therefore children can stay focused on one subject matter, solidifying the concept. Over the course of the camp experience, participants are transformed into little scientists. Through a variety of spectacular workshops, children don't just enjoy themselves; they gain scientific knowledge along the way. Through fun games and original activities, children learn about the wonders of space, discover the mysteries of medical science, build amazing structures and much more!
Half-day camps include:
Camps are for ages 6-10 and run Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. Extended care is available. Camp fee is $48 per camper per week. Click here for easy online registration!
