While the Orpheum Children's Science Museum is closed, we are working with community partners to bring you summer camps in 2021. Check back here for more details coming soon!


Summer Camp Costs

All costs per student and per week

To Be Announced

Time Travel Adventure

Ever wanted to travel through time? Go on an adventure with dinosaurs? See what your backyard looked like a million years ago? Join us on a time travel adventure where we’ll look at the history of Earth from the first rocks forming, to ancient animals and dinosaurs, and then to the first humans to live here, right up through today! Along the way we’ll make sure to stop right here in Illinois to see how much it's changed.

Engineers Save the World

Everyday we use tools, structures, and vehicles all designed by engineers. Without these inventions we might not be able to survive. Throughout history, engineers have been solving problems and overcoming challenges to make our world a better place. In this camp we’ll learn how engineers problem solve to make a better tool, stronger house, or taller building.


Ever had a chance to build your very own robot? Join us as we learn how robots are designed, built, and programmed. Throughout the week you’ll have the chance to build your very own robot with one of our LEGO robotics kits! You may even find yourselves in a friendly competition with your fellow campers! We have two varieties of kits that will be useful to all ages and experience levels so don’t be shy. This camp is suited for beginners and experienced builders alike!

Creative Science

In this camp students will learn the scientific method and practice a wide variety of experiments throughout the week. Each one will hep students understand how to ask questions, make hypotheses, and plan experiments.  At the end of the week students will be able to unleash their creativity and create their very own experiment to be conducted on Friday.

Master Builders

Do you love LEGO? Whether you're a master builder already or just breaking into the LEGO world, we'd love to help you harness your creativity and skills! Join us for a week of imagination and building! We’ll have building challenges, make LEGO art, and even make and play games all using LEGO!
