All ages include rising students (for example 3 means students entering 3rd grade in the fall)
Camps only run if they meet their minimum number
Also see at the bottom of the page our partnership with the MU Rec Center. Your kids can do one of our 1/2-day camps and spent the other 1/2 day at the Rec Center. This program is our STaR partnership (Science, Tech and Rec).
We try to stay a little flexible on age groups based on individual children’s needs and also the desire to keep siblings together – just let us know.
STaR Partnership -Science, Tech and Rec
This summer we will be partnering with the Marshall University Rec Center Summer day camp. Any week we have half-day camps, your child can spend a half day with us exercising their brains and a half day running around at the Rec Center. If you sign up for this program, our staff will take our morning session campers once their day with us is done and drop them off at noon at the Rec Center, where you can pick them up at the end of the day. If you child is an afternoon camper with us, they can start their morning at the Rec center and our staff will pick them up at 12:45 and transport to the Science Building where you can pick them up at the end of the day. We are trying to make our camps easier and more accessible for full time working parents. Also email us if you need early drop off or late pick up, many times we can arrange this as well. After you register with us just contact the Rec Center front desk (call or drop in) and ask them about the STaR partnership (Science, Tech and Rec) and they will let your register for a half day with them (at their half-day rates). If you have questions about Rec Center portion of this program, please contact Chad Steen, Assistant Director of Adventure Rec & Youth Programs, 304-696-4732 or email@example.com.
For our 7th year, the Marshall University College of Science is hosting Summer Science Adventure camps. Let us share with your child an unforgettable experience. With Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math, full STEAM ahead with idea that can learning can be so fun. All camps are hands-on with science, include creativity and art, and we sneak math in at every opportunity (and the kids don’t even notice it).
With camps spanning many fields such as veterinarian sciences, physics, microscopy, anatomy, microbiology, and computer programming, your child will explore through both hands-on and activity based learning. The camps offer the opportunity for your child to enrich their science education and see what real science is all about.
Our camps are designed and staffed by MU professors, graduate students, and local professionals to ensure your child is being taught by people whose careers are science based. Assistants include use Marshall students and STEM high school students for experience for everyone. Camps range from 2:6-2:10 staff-camper ratio permitting very individualized instruction. These camps will give your child an opportunity to explore careers in the sciences and, since these camps are in Marshall University laboratories, it’s a great peak to see what college has to offer!
