KSL Science Camps Build Confidence
KSL science day camps are specially designed to educate, enrich, and build self-esteem through science exploration and discovery. KSL Summer Scholars (that’s what we like to call our campers) are grouped by age and will engage in fun hands-on science each day of camp.
The KSL Chicago 2013 Summer Program offers 13 individual weeks of day camps for summer scholars. Each week of summer camp covers an exciting area of science. Campers become super science sleuths, mini physicians, emerging engineers, and future architects through engaging weekly programs such as Spy Science, Little Doctors, How Stuff Works, Builder’s Paradise, and more.
Summer Camp Fun in a Safe, Cool Space
KSL summer camps are all held in our beautiful eco-friendly 4,000ft² science center in Lincoln Park. All of our science day camps take place in cool, comfortable, classrooms.
We encourage hydration and healthy snacks are welcome at summer camp, but please remember we are a nut-free facility and will enforce our strict NO Peanut, NO Tree-Nut policy for the safety of our campers!
Space is limited for our summer camps. ($100 deposit required per session)
