Summer at Thanksgiving Point means there is no chance for the summertime blues! This year we have more summer camp classes and variety than ever before. Let your child explore space, try their hand at paleontology, program a Lego robot, explore insects, learn the science behind the food we eat, go on a dinosaur discovery, and so much more!
During our summer camps there really is something for every child in your household. Preschoolers can come and join in the fun with classes on everything from dinosaurs to music while elementary aged kids can participate in day or weeklong camps as well. There’s even classes geared around middle school and high school children to while surely stimulate and engage their minds during the summer. Thanksgiving Point Members also get exclusive Summer Day Camp registration March 1-5, 2018 during our Members-only pre-sale!
Remember, class sizes are limited and popular classes fill up quickly, so don't delay. See you this summer!
Registration closes one week prior to the beginning of camp.
Camp sessions vary in price depending on grade, length of day, and days per week. Please check individual camp listings for price information.
Transfers are permitted up to 1 business day or 24 hours in advance with a $10.00 fee based on availability and any cost difference between camps.
Substitutions – a neighbor, cousin, sibling, etc. - are accepted up to first day of camp.
If a camp is cancelled by Thanksgiving Point Institute due to low enrollment, all fees will be refunded.
There are two drop off locations for Summer Day Camps. You can find a map HERE
Camp curriculum and lesson plans are geared toward the grade your child will be entering into in the Fall of 2018. If you have an older and a younger child you would like to be in the same camp we do allow older children to attend camps one grade lower.
Our camps promote independent learning and socialization opportunities for your child. If you feel your child is unable to remain in camp without you, it may be best to wait a year before you send them to camp.
Depending on which camp you choose your child could be making and programming a Lego EV3 robot, painting with watercolors in the gardens, catching polliwogs and toads to make observations, collecting insects and plants to research, using software to design and 3D print jewelry, or feeding goats and sheep to learn about adaptations.
All of our campers come home with parent letters with additional resources – websites, books, experiments, and activities – to continue the fun all summer long!
