Choose a Summer Camp in the Harrisburg Area

We offer exciting camps for kids with all kinds of scientific interests. You’ll be thrilled when they come home each day, excited about what they learned and ready to go back for more! Our instructors’ enthusiasm is contagious — you’ll become as excited about science as we are!

We offer weeklong half-day or full-day summer camps on Mondays through Fridays. Our half-day camps are perfect for younger campers with less experience in classroom environments. Full-day camps are an excellent way to entertain your older elementary children with tons of hands-on activities.

Our array of camp topics gives every child a learning experience that engages their curiosity. During camp, kids might build a robot, dig for dinosaurs or complete missions to Mars. These camps allow your kids to explore topics that interest them or get an extra dose of science learning outside the classroom.

Get After-School Learning Opportunities

In addition to our summer camps, Science Explorers also provides after-school STEM clubs. These hour-long programs meet once a week for three to five weeks. We offer options for children grades K-6 with hands-on learning like acid and base investigations, slime-making opportunities and light mazes. Give your child the chance to meet new friends and improve their academic performance with Science Explorers.

We Value STEM Learning

Science, technology, engineering and math are valuable far beyond your child’s time in school. They’ll use these skills for the rest of their lives. A STEM education doesn’t just teach your child about the world — it also gives them problem-solving, critical thinking and teamwork skills. That’s why Science Explorers proudly supports STEM education.

Here are a few ways our Dauphin County summer camps can set your child up for success:

  • They allow your child to try new things and innovate to find creative solutions.
  • Our camps encourage your child to take scientific principles and apply them to the world around them.
  • As children collaborate to build rockets or dissect a shark, they learn valuable teamwork and collaboration skills.
  • Your kid gets extra exposure to scientific topics, increasing their confidence in the classroom and life.
