 Imagination Station Summer Camp

 In-person camps at the science center begin in June.


(TOLEDO, Ohio) - Another hands-on, science-stuffed, excitement-packed summer is just around the corner at Imagination Station!  Right now, campers ages 6-13 can sign up for one (or two or three!) weeks of amazing summer camps at the science center. From computer coding to some seriously messy science, Summer Camp will inspire creativity and challenge and expand growing minds.

Now more than ever the need for engaging educational experiences is great. Research shows the summer months can be a time of learning loss for kids, often referred to as the summer slide. Combine that with the challenges of the last school year and the importance of providing high-quality enrichment over summer break is clear. Imagination Station is here to help!

Each summer camp program has been reimagined to align with local and state COVID-19 recommendations and guidelines. Camp capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing, campers and counselors will be required to wear masks during their visit and temperature checks will be administered before campers and Team members enter the science center.

Join us for a spectacular summer of science and be sure to visit us starting Friday, May 28!

Register today at imaginationstationtoledo.org.
