Winter Camp!

December 26, 2017 @ 9:00 am - December 29, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Send your kids to the coolest camp in the coldest time!

The 9th annual Cold Storage Winter Camp takes place December 26, 27, 28 & 29, 2017 at The Lancaster Science Factory. Campers will enjoy hands-on activities, fun demonstrations, and be submerged in the chill and thrill of science!

Each half-day session costs $30 per child. Reserve both sections on the same day for $55. Or book all 8 sessions for $200. The more you book, the more you save! Members also receive an extra 10% off.

Children that are attending both morning and afternoon camps are welcome to stay for Lunch Bunch, in which they can eat their own packed lunch, and then enjoy time on the exhibit floors before the afternoon camp begins.

We are also recruiting volunteers age 16+ to help with Camp!

Space is limited, so make your reservation soon…
