Why School’s Out Summer Camp?

Why School’s Out Summer Camp?

There are many camps in Kentuckiana where you could send your child. At Kentucky Science Center, camp is a unique experience.

  • We are working to ensure that we maintain the quality of our camp experience including smaller camp sizes, low staff-camper ratio, engaging STEAM activities, and opportunities for parent engagement at drop-off and pick-up. Our team is ready to welcome your camper into a safe and fun learning environment.
  • Hands-on and engaging activities – Our camp curriculums are intentionally developed to empower campers to ask questions, play, tinker, explore, collaborate, test, experiment, goof up and to try again. Each camp experience is designed to have tangible connections to the Kentucky Academic Standards and is facilitated by our trained dynamic camp team of teachers, counselors, and volunteers.
  • Science demonstrations – During the week, campers will be able to experience science demonstrations facilitated by our education team.
  • Theater experience – Once during the week, campers will be able to view a documentary movie in our 4-story digital theater.
  • Science Center exhibits – Throughout the week, campers will get time to explore their favorite features of the Science Center such as the water table, magnet wall, Gravitram, Happy Climber, polar bears and more. Campers are scheduled to visit exhibits that are age appropriate. For more information on our exhibits, please visit our Exhibits page.
  • Committed Staff – Our Summer Camp team is devoted to ensuring your camper has the best experience:
    • Camps & Family Programs Manager- Our camp team is led by Amber Sherrard (amber.sheffield@louisvilleky.gov).
    • Camp Teachers – Certified teachers from the local area or students who are completing a certified education program at a local college or university.
    • Camp Counselors – College students who have an interest in education or science and have prior experience working with children. Their goal is to serve as an assistant to the Camp Teacher and help your campers have the great experience.
    • Volunteens – High school students looking for experience helping in the classroom.
    • Support Team – Our camp support team include our camp leads who help oversee our daily camp operations.
