Summer Camp in a Box

Summer Camp in a Box!

Get your Summer Camp in a Box featuring 5 activities with included consumable supplies, coloring pages, extra activities, online resources, and more! These kids are great for kids age 4-8 with parent help, and age 9-12 without parent help!

Each theme will correspond to one to two weeks of our Daily Dose of Science series, where you’ll be able to find more fun activities, videos of some of the challenging activities, and an Ask a Scientist on Friday, related to the theme! Educators are available to help all summer long, too!
