You’re About to Have the Best Summer EVER!

The Lancaster Science Factory is celebrating 16 years of providing the best hands-on STEM Summer Camps in Lancaster County (and beyond)!  Registration is now open for the 2024 camp season.


Camps run each week Monday through Friday. Choose a morning camp from 9am – 12pm, an afternoon camp from 1 -4pm, OR pick both to pack a lunch and stay for a full day!  Please check grade level requirements carefully to be sure your child matches their LAST COMPLETED GRADE.


Each camp is $175 per camp. Scholarships are available for families with a financial need. Register now, these camps WILL sell out!


Camp Guidelines and Information

  • Camp registration includes 3 hours of camp instruction and activities daily and supervised breaks on the Lancaster Science Factory exhibit floor.
  • Registration for each camp is limited and will be closed when maximum registration is reached or one week prior to the beginning of camp, whichever comes first.
