For the inaugural year of Summer Camp at Frost Science, we’re hosting two different camps—an eight- week session for 2nd through 5th graders at our Museum Park campus and a four-week long Outdoor Explorers program that takes 6th through 8th graders on an adventure through different ecological sites in Miami-Dade County.

Younger campers will design planes and rocket ships, meet the animals in our Aquarium, explore the universe in our state-of-the-art 8K Frost Planetarium and learn about the amazing human body and brain, while the Outdoor Explorers program takes middle-schoolers on a snorkeling and kayaking adventure through our local waterways as they analyze and collect data from different ecological locations around town in their role as citizen scientists.

Each week of camp will include a planetarium show and free exploration time around the museum.

Space is limited, so reserve your spot today!
