Why KSC 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 while making accommodations to adhere to CDC policies such as smaller camp sizes, implementing social distancing, increased sanitization, and continued alignment with our state’s guidelines. Our team is ready to welcome your camper into a safe and fun learning environment. Please note, the guidelines may change based on new information or additional guidance from local or state agencies.
  • Hands on 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.
