Summer Scientist Camps

Be a Summer scientist

Lily Pad Lab offers new and exciting summer camp weeks for kids who have finished kindergarten through 6th grade. Kids love the mystery and surprise of seeing things fizzy, bubble, explode, and fly! Our new camps for summer 2020 will encourage kids to be creative, get messy, make new discoveries, find out how things work, and explore life around us.

If you’ve ever watched children at play, you know they’re fascinated with building things, how things move and change, and ask great questions. Children are natural-born scientists and we love to nurture those innate skills during our camps.

In addition to having a TON of fun at our Summer Scientist Camps, kids will also...

  • Build Science and Math skills and understand how they apply to the world around them.

  • Gain 21st Century skills by participating in hands-on, project based learning

  • Understand that failure is an important part of the problem-solving process and a positive way to learn.   

  • Spend the week with our outstanding State Certified Teaching Staff

Summer Scientist Camp Curriculum is designed for all kids who have just finished K-6th grade.  We know all kids are curious and we love to give kids the opportunity to explore in a super fun and engaging environment.  We only hire highly qualified experienced teachers who are dedicated to ensuring your child has a safe, valuable and memorable experience.   


Summer Scientist Camps programming runs from 9:00am - 12:00pm.  Each week we will dive into different topics.

Lily Pad Lab also offers the Afternoon Fun Option if needed from 12:00pm - 4:00pm.  During Afternoon Fun we will do lots of our favorite summer activities, have field trips, play games, etc.
