Summer Camp Availability and Status

We are excited to offer Summer Science Camps this summer in a modified capacity!

We understand that our community has many needs at this time, and we are here to do whatever we can to help support our families.

Our modified camps will adhere to Eagle County’s new Public Health Order and be based on the “transition trail map” which outlines three initial phases of recovery (green circle, blue square, black diamond). Camps will begin June 15 as scheduled, as long as we enter the blue square phase and have state/county approval. 

Currently, Walking Mountains Science Center is accepting registrations and wait list sign-ups for 2020 Summer Camps marked with green circles and as outlined below. 

Camp should run as planned with decreased camper numbers.


Camp status to be determined, information to be communicated every 2 weeks via email.

Camp canceled to comply with public health orders or low enrollment/capacity issues.
