CSI's Science Summer Camp for Little Sprouts provides a fun environment where 4 and 5 year olds can learn about science through age appropriate hands-on projects, crafts, and activities designed to encourage wonder and creative thinking.
This program has been developed to meet the needs of parents with kids who are too young to attend our elementary age Weird and Wacky Science Summer Camp. Our Science Summer Camp for Little Sprouts follows the same daily themes as the Weird and Wacky Science camp so that both older and younger campers can share similar daily experiences. Activities are subject to change.
The camp will feature a smaller number of kids in the room and teachers with passion and experience teaching this age group in order to provide the extra level of help and supervision that these younger campers require. Additionally, this camp will be held in a newly renovated, kid-friendly room that will ensure no child will ever get bored!
What is the cost of camp? The cost of Summer camp is $175 per week. Camp T-Shirt is included. Sorry, No refunds.
What are the camp hours?
Camp hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm Monday through Friday. Early drop off is from 8:00am-9:00am and after care is offered from 3:00pm to 5:00pm at a rate of $10 per hour.
What are the ages for camp? Children ages 4-5.
Is lunch provided? No, campers need to bring a bag lunch daily. We suggest an extra drink and snack for mid-afternoon. Campers may bring a small, personal cooler if they prefer.
