Just because school is on a break doesn’t mean the learning has to stop!
Orlando Science Center hosts break camps when Orange County Public Schools or Seminole County Public Schools are out of session for teacher work days and holiday breaks including winter and spring break.
Engaging break camps give children a productive and fun way to spend their time off from school with a chance to learn more about STEM in an exciting, interactive environment. Campers will explore a variety of hands-on science topics in a classroom setting and outdoors!
*Preschool is a DCF licensed center C09OR0729.
