Academy Science Camp: Planet Protectors

July 10, 2023 through July 14, 2023

9:00 AM-4:00 PM

Your mission: learn what you can do to protect the environment.

We’ll tinker with trash and transform it. We’ll investigate how waste makes its way into our waterways and how it impacts our animals and insects. Spend time exploring the museum while learning about sustainability, climate change and plastics. Campers will help contribute to Plastic-free Philly with hands-on recycling activities.

This program features small group activities. New topics will be explored every day. Bring home useful make-and-takes and practice your science skills with experiments and projects. Chill out as you take in a special show or look alive when you meet our animal ambassadors. What will you discover about the world?
