Summer Camp


Is your child ready for a fun experience at a place they love? At Kentucky Science Center’s Schools Out Summer Camp, your child will develop skills and make friendships that will last a lifetime. Our camp encourages all campers to play, tinker, and investigate the world around them with plenty of time to explore their favorite science center.

KSC Schools Out Camp aims to provide the safest camp possible for our campers and staff. The science is still there, just with a little more space between the bowls of slime. In compliance with the guidelines announced by state and local officials, we will conduct wellness screenings, social distancing measures, and disinfection and sanitation protocols for our staff and facility. We are exploring new ways to communicate with and include our campers in the conversation. Navigating these uncertain times can be scary and overwhelming. Camp can lay a course towards building resilience and hope that will set root and grow with our campers throughout their lives.
