Camp Explorations is a hands-on, interactive, science-focused summer camp program. Each session includes daily experiments, hands-on activities, related games, journaling and plenty of fun! There are eight different sessions covering topics such as Archaeology, Paleontology, Astronomy, Forensic Science, Zoology and much more!  

*Campers must comply with applicable University of Michigan public health policies at the time camp occurs. The policies are subject to change, and we will keep parents informed. At this time, masks are required inside all U-M buildings and we observe recommendations for distancing.
