Academy Science Camp: Challenge Accepted: Amazing Animal Adaptations

July 17, 2023 through July 21, 2023

9:00 AM-4:00 PM

It’s game time! How do you compare to some of nature’s best athletes?

Are you as fast as a falcon? Fearsome as a lion? Agile as an anaconda? Test your skills through a week of animal games and challenges. Along the way we’ll examine some of the coolest specimens in the Academy from bugs to bones. Everyone will be a winner as we discover why some animals thrive and why some just can’t compete!

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?
