Kids Discovery Factory is excited to announce the transition of our annual STEAM Camp to a virtual model for 2020. At a time when many activities are being cancelled, we are thrilled to be able to offer the same great STEAM experience in a format that follows current safety guidelines. We look forward to hosting K-6th grade campers for an engaging at-home experience July 13-16!
We have reimagined our activities and designed an at-home kit that will engage campers in exciting age-appropriate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art activities. We will deliver kits to students at home (students outside of Ripley, Franklin, Decatur and Dearborn counties will need to pick up their kits, at a designated time and location.) Each kit will contain written instructions, in addition to instructor-led videos that will be provided on our website. Each camper will still receive a shirt, which will be incorporated this year as a tie dye camp activity!
Cost is $60 for the first camper. (Additional campers from the same family are $40 each.)
