“What did you do during your school break?” Orlando Science Center campers love to answer this question! Give your kids a productive and fun way to spend their time off from school with a program that offers kids the chance to learn more about STEM in an exciting, interactive environment.

Full-day school break camps are offered for Pre-K through Grade 5 when Orange County Public Schools or Seminole County Public Schools are out of session. This includes holiday breaks and any other days out of school.

 

Break camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Early and late care are provided at no additional cost. Campers can be dropped off as early as 7:30 a.m. and picked up as late as 6 p.m. A late fee applies after 6 p.m.

Grades 3-5: Expedition Bugs
You may know the difference between an insect and an arachnid, or how a spider spins a web, but do you know a superworm’s favorite food, or how much a caterpillar can eat in a day?
