We are planning to hold the summer 2022 Science-U camps in person on the Penn State University Park campus. As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still a high need to protect the health and safety of our community. All Science-U participants will be expected to follow University guidelines, which currently include wearing a mask when inside any building, frequently washing or sanitizing hands, and staying home when ill. Our team will work to ensure the safety of all participants by cleaning frequently, providing personal protective equipment (PPE), and updating our refund and illness policies. We will continuously monitor the COVID-19 situation and post information on our web page if any changes occur, including a possible switch to virtual camps should the need arise. We are temporarily out of the office due to COVID-19 work flexibility protocols. Please email us at with any questions.

Summer Camps

Each of our Science-U camps is designed to take campers through a one-week journey that investigates an area of STEM in a fascinating and meaningful way. Guided by our passionate staff, Science-U campers are encouraged to ask questions, think critically, and explore all the ways that science can captivate them and make a difference in their lives. Our sincere hope is that every camper comes out of their Science-U experience inspired to stay curious and keep learning! Registration opens 2/8 at 10 AM.
