Do Science this Summer with Adler Summer Camps!
Your campers won’t ride any horses or capture any flags at the Adler, but they will have the whole Universe at their fingertips. With tools like telescopes, programmable robots, and high-altitude balloons—and new friends around every corner—Adler summer campers share adventures of cosmic proportions.
The Adler Planetarium offers a variety of unique summer day-camp experiences for campers entering preschool through 10th grade. Young space and technology enthusiasts can use their imaginations, get creative, and explore their Universe together just like scientists do.
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. However, if your young child benefits from repetition, you are welcome to register for multiple sessions of the half-day Astro Camps.

Adler kids reach for the stars (and grow) with us!
Adler camps and teen programs are designed to challenge, delight, and support children of all ages—and appeal to individual kids as their minds grow and change.
This year, a kindergartner loves to look up at the Moon. Next year, she may want to learn about the technology that made it possible for people to walk on it. A few years later, she’ll be programming robots. And by the time she’s in high school, she can design an astrophotography experiment, launch it into the stratosphere, and snap a space-based picture of a lunar eclipse.
