Summer Camp


This isn’t your average summer camp. Against the backdrop of real dinosaur fossils, chemistry in action and a world-class institution, kids can experience a summer of education and adventure. Geared for kids ages 6-12, Summer Camps at HMNS use fun, hands-on learning and distinguished teachers to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists. A wide range of topics from physics and coding to paleontology and forensic science are explored.

What will your child discover?

The week-long camps at HMNS Hermann Park run from May 30 to August 11 and from May 30 to August 4 at our HMNS at Sugar Land location.
