StoSci Summer Camps are THE summer science ticket in the tri-state area!

Storefront Science summer camps are inquiry-based, exploratory and thematic, allowing kids to “go deep” in a particular science area. Each week, we offer two topics – morning and afternoon – so kids can spend their summer doing things they are interested in. You can select as few or as many weeks as you like, and half-day or full day options! Camps are open to children ages 4-12. All Summer Science Camps will be held at the First Baptist Church, 265 West 79th Street (on the corner of Broadway and 79th).

Full day option: 9-4, or Half day option: 9-12 (am) or 1-4 (pm)
Cost: Full day $600 per week or Half Day $350 per week

Sibling and multi-week discounts apply.

***SPECIAL FOR UPTOWN FAMILIES: Uptown Kids will be transported to Bennett Park DAILY for pick-up by 5:00pm. We will have a small adult:child ratio to ensure safety. There will be additional release forms to be signed. And this will only cost you an additional $25 per week. Space will be limited for this option, so if you are interested, please REGISTER today.

Playground Physics – or how do those things work?!
Let’s explore the fundamentals of physics – forces and motion – in playgrounds and parks!

Building Big – and wide and tall and stable!
Size, Scale, Strength, Stability – we’ll examine them all as we explore the UWS and build models.

Urban Naturalist – the wonders of New York City!
Let’s explore the parks and waterways of the UWS to learn about the flora and fauna that share our city with us.

Too Small to See – and too big to ignore!
From sub-atomic particles to the knowable universe – let’s explore super small to super big!

Tinker Time – where science, art and creativity hang out!
Let’s get creative and design and build kinetic art, moving machines, robots, and more.

Go Fly a Kite – And other uplifting pursuits!
It’s time to defy gravity! We’ll design and build kites, paper airplanes, and other gravity-defying machines.

Let’s Get Physical – How does your body work?
With NYC as our lab, we’ll explore how our body works.

Hey Old Bones – Let’s Talk Paleontology!
Travel back in time to explore rocks, minerals, fossils and of course, dinosaurs.
