Science Summer Camp

Pueblo Science’s summer camp offers one or two weeks of engaging educational activities guaranteed to lift your child’s enthusiasm for science. Intended for children starting grade 1 to completing grade 4. The camp provides an opportunity to explore a variety of topics in chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and electronics, all in a collaborative and exciting environment! Our goal is to encourage a lifelong interest in learning and inquisitiveness through hands-on activities.
