Winter Science Camp

Winter Science Camp 

$85 per child/$75 per member child per day

Registration required; space is limited, so sign up today!

Ages 6–10

Spend your winter break at the Academy with our fun educators, cool exhibits and wild science! Sign up for one date, or sign up for them all; each day will feature NEW hands-on activities, creative crafts and untold secrets of the museum. Learn about the naturally awesome science at the Academy, from fossils and dinosaurs to bugs, birds and botanicals! See rare specimens and explore the museum as you never have before.

This program features small group, socially distanced activities. New topics will be explored every day. You can bring home useful make-and-takes and practice your science skills with experiments and projects. Chill out as you take in a socially distanced show. What will you discover about the world?

To comply with CDC guidelines, drop-off and pickup protocols must be strictly followed. Due to updated capacity, participants must wait outside until escorted inside by staff. Check-in will begin no earlier than 8:45 a.m. and dismissal begins at 4 p.m. (contact us if you need to arrange early pickup). Participants must be picked up by no later than 4:15 p.m. and staff will bring children outside to meet their approved adults. We regret that before- and after-care is not available at this time. Participants must bring their own lunches and eat at designated times (allergies can be accommodated). Digital permission forms will be sent after registration and must be completed by December 10, 2021.

How are we keeping kids and staff safe during Winter Break Camp?

Safety is our number one priority; program plans have been evaluated and approved by health and safety officers at Drexel University. All museum spaces adhere to strict CDC guidelines governing room capacity and air exchange. Each group is made up of no more than 12 children with two staff, and each group stays together all day in spaces large enough to maintain more than six feet of distance. Our staff is in full compliance with Drexel vaccine policies. Registrants provide their own lunches. Social distancing and mask wearing are mandatory, and there are frequent handwashing and cleaning breaks, per state and federal recommendations. All staff and participants must abide by Drexel COVID guidelines. Visit to find out more about expectations for staff and visitors.
