Summer Camps For Kids Entering First through Fourth Grade

Adler Planetarium Summer Camps - Astro Full Day Camps - Kids enjoy playing with stomp rockets!

Astro Camp | Full-Day

The Adler’s camps for younger children (also known as Astro Camps) introduce campers to scientific exploration in a fun and supportive community!

NASA’s Apollo missions inspired generations of scientists, engineers, authors, and filmmakers. This year, as we celebrate five decades since the Apollo missions put human footprints on the Moon, campers will explore Earth’s cosmic companion and the technology, ingenuity, and imagination that made it possible.

Registration for the 2019 Summer Camp season has come to an end! We look forward to seeing you next year.

Please note that summer camp programming is repeated each session. Each type of camp will have the same curriculum each time it is offered. Registering for more than one session of the same camp program is not recommended.

Astro Camp (Full-Day) Logistics

By popular demand, Astro Camps are now a full week long! In celebration of the 50th anniversaries of the Apollo missions, campers will spend five full days at Adler, exploring the Moon. Whether they’re investigating the technology that made Moon landings possible, creating art inspired by the Moon’s beauty, or engineering a way for humans to return to the Moon, campers will be engaged in learning through fun all day long! They’ll also see a show in one of our state-of-the-art theaters, spend time playing and doing science outside on beautiful Museum Campus, and exploring the Adler’s exhibits.
