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. What will your child discover?

The week-long day camps at HMNS Hermann Park run from June 7 to August 13 and from June 1 to August 6 at our HMNS at Sugar Land location. The camps cover a wide range of topics from physics and coding to paleontology and forensic science.

Registration begins March 2, 2021 for the general public and even sooner for members! Become a member for priority registration access as early as Tuesday, December 1.
