Summer Camp Overview

Kids Science Labs presents a series of weekly summer science camps in Chicago from June 10th - August 30th designed to enhance your child’s critical thinking skills and problem solving ability combined with great summer camp fun for children ages 4 yrs and up.  

Kids Science Labs' summer camps are some of the best in the nation thanks to our amazing team and the depth of our curriculum.  Our camps incorporate weekly themes and topics ranging from medicine to chemistry to engineering design, all topics certain to engage your curious child. Our goal is to foster the next generation of creative thinkers by changing the way your child perceives, learns about, and interacts with the world around them.  It is an audacious goal that has been the foundation for our core values since we began nearly a decade ago.

In our camps, we strive to help children retain their creative mindset and we believe the way we present science to them and hands-on projects are the perfect vehicle. After experiencing something far different from the usual summer camp, this growth mindset will give your child a better understanding of science concepts and more importantly confidence in their ability to design and create. They leave with a reawakened curiosity and desire to learn.  And we guarantee they will bring home more than a few projects that will amaze you.

Join us and make this summer fun, rewarding, and one that will benefit your child for years to come.
