Camp IMAG Summer

Join us at the IMAG History & Science Center for a summer filled with STEM & history! Campers will have a blast while inventing, experimenting, exploring, and investigating in our all-new immersive one-week camps. Plus, they will also explore the museum, experience our live Animal Encounters, participate in our all-new Science Shows, get up close with our sea life in our Touch Tank, and meet dinosaurs and titans of the ice age in our 3D Theater! Our number one goal is FUN- with a big side of LEARNING!

Camp IMAG sessions include fun and educational hands-on activities, games, crafts, special guests, and exhibit explorations! Our innovative curriculum integrates STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), history, the arts, and humanities to inspire the imagination and encourage an overall love of learning! Camps are designed for rising 1st-8th graders and are divided into rising 1st – 2nd graders, rising 3rd – 5th graders, and rising 6th – 8th graders.
