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 pre-school through 10th grade. Young space and technology enthusiasts alike will have the opportunity to participate in real scientific exploration that will ignite their curiosity and creativity.
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 preschooler benefits from repetition, you are welcome to register for multiple sessions of Young Scientists Camp.
