The “Summer of Science Camps” is offering eight weeks of fun-filled, educational and experiential adventures this summer season.

Each of our week-long day camps consist of hands-on activities, STEAM infused programming (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math), outdoor recreation (including swimming at UNC-Asheville pool) and so much more!

Our summer camps are designed to spark youth’s curiosity by promoting engagement and exploration. Our summer camp team members are experienced and trained in facilitating successful, scientific experiential-based programming. And in addition to the team members on hand, AMOS partners with local community organizations and experts (from the profession of STEAM fields) to lead and support these amazing activities!
