A Summer Camp for Girls and Boys

SDC logoScience Discovery Camp is a summer camp where girls and boys can enjoy a fun-filled week with science! We offer a range of programs including anatomy, astronomy, biology, chemistry, CSI, dinosaurs, earth science, general science, space science, math, model rocketry, physics, and things that can fly.

SDC runs over a two week period each year in early to mid June with both a morning and an afternoon session. Campers may choose to attend up to 4 sessions during the two weeks, coming in the morning, afternoon, or both for both weeks. Campers attending both a morning and an afternoon session can make use of a cafeteria where they can eat their packed lunches (drinks not provided), and later a short block of recess before beginning the afternoon session.

SDC will be held at Royalmont Academy in Mason, Ohio this year.

Our unique program structure enables campers to experience the scientific method first-hand from a wide range of interests.

Our staff work closely with our campers to ensure that they explore and understand what they are learning. We understand the importance of one-on-one instruction, and with class sizes limited to 12-14 campers, depending on grade, we maintain an exceptional counselor-to-camper ratio. We also have a few camp helpers, usually high-school or college-aged students, who are available to assist our counselors and ensure each camper gets the help and support they need.
