UA Fusion Camps 

Summer fun at the Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium. Weekly camps for kids entering kindergarten through 7th 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.

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.

UA Employee Discounts: University of Arizona employees eligible for full benefits may visit UA Life & Work Connections regarding qualified reimbursement for specific, work-related, childcare (serving children birth-12 years) occurring in Arizona. Qualifying childcare includes a “program sponsored by the University of Arizona.”

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-7th 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-7th grade camps will include off-campus field trips. We will also have outdoor activities on the grassy mall just in front of Flandrau.

All of our scholarships are currently allocated for summer 2017.

Junior Camp Couselor positions are full for summer 2017.
