Summer Camps

A range of science and math-focused camps and workshops are available for young people. Many of these programs are traditional weeklong day camp experiences on the UA campus. Some of our premier summer camp programs take advantage of our close proximity to the UA's world-class telescope facilities on Mount Lemmon. All are designed to provide campers a research experience emphasizing hands on activity.
