Explore Science, Forensics, and STEM at Our 2020 Summer Camps!

by Creation Museum on February 6, 2020

Are you looking for a Christian educational experience for your child this summer? Look no further than our Explore Camps! These day camps feature hands-on science and biblical worldview teaching, and your child is sure to love them.

This summer, we’re offering two Explore Camps (with three dates to choose from) and a special camp with the STEM group Teach Me Automation. These are available for students who have completed 4th grade through high school. Learn more about each opportunity below.

Explore Science 5-Day Summer Camp

Our Explore Science 5-Day Summer Camp is taking place twice again this year: June 15–19 and July 13–17, 2020. This camp features twenty hands-on science workshops (involving different disciplines), a zipline adventure, a planetarium show, a guided tour of the Creation Museum, and more.

As your children learn from expert instructors, they will not only discover more about God’s creation and how it works but will also look to God’s Word for the proper framework for understanding and interpreting science. It’s hands-on science with a biblical worldview—there aren’t too many other places you can find that!

Explore Forensics 3-Day Summer Camp

Our Explore Forensics 3-Day Summer Camp will take place June 24–26, 2020. Campers will dive into the remarkable world of forensics as they get hands-on experience with fingerprinting, trace (hair and fibers) analysis, impressions (shoe and dental), DNA, crime scene recording, and document examination. This session is taught by a certified forensic scientist, and kids will catch a glimpse of how intricately God designed each of us!

Teach Me Automation 3-Day STEM Camp

The third camp we will host at the Creation Museum this summer is led by the group Teach Me Automation. The Teach Me Automation 3-Day STEM Camp, July 22–24, 2020, introduces campers to the basics of automation through hands-on STEM workshops. Campers will learn technology principles, solve problems, and conquer challenges creatively on a team. This is done through the lens of a biblical worldview, always pointing campers back to Christ and his Word.
