Summer Science Camps

Walking Mountains Science Center’s Summer Science Camps allow children to experience the wild places of the Eagle Valley while nurturing their connection to the natural world through daily exploration of local trails. Campers investigate principles of ecology and develop an understanding of scientific concepts through fun, adventure, experiments, and exploration. All Summer Science Camps are age-appropriate and taught by qualified natural science educators that make learning safe and fun. Overnight camps take place at one of the historic 10th Mountain Division Huts


If a camp is listed as FULL in our registration system, but you would like to sign up for our waitlist, please complete the normal registration process. You will be asked for credit card information during check-out, but your card will not be charged. We have received a number of cancellations and have successfully transferred a number of waitlisted campers into camps for this summer. You will be contacted by phone if a spot opens up for your camper!

At this time we are planning to offer Summer Science Camps in a modified capacity.
Given our need to adapt programs to comply with Public Health Orders we will be adjusting some camp formats. We will also be limiting camp sizes which will decrease our capacity and unfortunately, in cases, we will be canceling some camps entirely. Check camp status here.

For students entering the 1st or 2nd grade in the fall, our summer science camps are the perfect introduction to the outdoors for your child!

3rd /4th Grade Summer Camps

Our 3rd/4th grade week-long day and overnight camps are all about fostering a love for the outdoors through natural science education and local trail exploration!

5th/6th Grade Summer Camps

Our 5th/6th grade week-long day and overnight camps take a deeper dive into a variety of scientific topics while still integrating learning into local trail exploration and hands-on activities.

7th/8th Grade Summer Camps

Whether through deep exploration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles, or overnight discovery of our public lands, Walking Mountains' 7th/8th camps are just as much about personal development as they are fun and learning!
