Summer fun at the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium! We offer weekly camps for kids entering kindergarten through 6th grade in the Fall of 2015. 

Camp themes include astronomy, marine biology, forensics, animals, bugs, kitchen chemistry, art, technology and much, much more!

UA Fusion Camp is a partner program between the Flandrau Science Center and the UA Bookstore and offers eight weeks of themed camps that are infused with literacy, creative arts and science exploration. The camps provide children with unique hands-on experiences that promote a love for learning.

Half-day camps are available for kids entering Kindergarten. Each week you can choose from an AM or PM session, or if you'd like  your kindergartener to have full-day enrichment, you can register for both! Cost for half-day AM or PM: $150 per session. The AM session operates from 9am – 12 noon and the PM session operates from 1-4 pm, Monday through Friday. For kids signed up for both the AM and PM sessions for the week, the cost is $250 per week and there is a supervised lunch and rest or play period from 12-1pm. Early (7:30-9am) and extended (4-6pm) care are available for an additional charge (see below.)

Physical and Outdoor Activities: Each full-day camp will swim two days per week for one hour in the Campus Recreation pool. We will also spend time during the week in an air conditioned gym in the Gittings building near Flandrau doing a variety of sports and other physical activities. We will walk to a variety of locations on campus, and some full-day camps will include off-campus field trips. We will also have outdoor activities on the grassy mall just in front of Flandrau.
