Science Zone hosting safe summer camps for kids
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Kids spray water at a cloth from a distance at this year’s Grossology camp. This is one of the camps The Science Zone has done this summer with changes they’ve made to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“We’ve done a lot of hiking and mountain biking camps keeping the kids outside and engaged. We are still finding ways to do science and camps,” said Julianna Ellis, an educator at the Science Zone.
These camps are different from the ones hosted by the Idea Lab. Ellis added these are pay to play.
“They have been running between one and two hundred dollars depending on how long the camp is and what we are doing,” Ellis said.
She added they have member pricing and scholarships available to help with these costs if kids are interested, but the cost is still too much for the family.
These camps have most of their activities outside and a couple inside the museum that’s still temporarily closed to the public.
Ellis adds a silver lining from all of the changes they’ve made is being able to teach science and explore Wyoming.
“It’s so much fun being in Wyoming and getting the kids involved in all the state’s adventures,” Ellis said.
Their next camps will be sound and food science Aug. 17 to 21.
