Summer Science Adventures 2021
All ages include rising students (for example 9 means students entering 9th in the fall). 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.
Camps only run if they meet their minimum number

Camp class size 5-12 (minimum of 3 to run)
College of Science Partnership
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, 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!
