UA Fusion CAMPS 

Summer fun at the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium. Weekly camps for kids entering kindergarten through 6th grade in Fall 2017.

UA Fusion Camps offer six weeks of themed camps that are infused with scientific exploration, literacy, creative arts, and fitness. The camps provide children with unique hands-on experiences that promote a love for learning.

Priority Registration for Flandrau Members opens February 21st, 2017 - Members check your email!

On March 1st, registration will open to the public. Please check back for the online registration link.

 

The Basics...

Camp Hours: 9:00am-4:00pm. 

Cost: $250 per week with the exception of the week of the 4th of July which is a 3 day camp and is $150.

Discounts:  Flandrau members receive a 10% discount on all weeks of camp. If you're not already a member, you will have the option to purchase a family membership when you register. Discounts apply to the camp tuition only and are not applied to extended care.

Physical and Outdoor Activities:  We will spend one hour, two-three days per week, in an air conditioned gym in the Gittings building near Flandrau doing a variety of sports and other physical activities related to camp themes. The 3rd/4th grade and 5th/6th grade camps will visit UA Campus Recreation Center where campers will swim twice a week for one hour. We will walk to a variety of locations on campus, and some 3rd/4th grade and 5th/6th grade camps will include off-campus field trips. We will also have outdoor activities on the grassy mall just in front of Flandrau.
