As we approach the summers months, The Science Zone has a multitude of summer camps, both indoors and outdoors for Casper youth.

A recent press release from The Science Zone stated:

The Science Zone announced the return of their Summer Camp series, featuring both indoor and outdoor camps for youngsters between ages 6 and 15. The camps will occur throughout the summer school break.

“The camps vary in price and age ranges, so there’s going to be something for just about everybody,” says Trevor Trujillo, Operations Administrator for the Science Zone. “Scholarship opportunities are also available for people who might find the registration fees prohibitive.”
