For Families


When school is out, COSI is in! School's Out Camps provide the perfect opportunity for campers to stay scientific outside of school.

All camps include snacks and supplies. Parents and caregivers, please pack a lunch for your campers. Wrap-around care is available for $5 an hour between 8am and 9am and between 4pm and 5pm.

Dates are available throughout the year for all ages and this site is updated as new camps become available.

Camps Reservations are now available for all customers!

Wrap-Around Care

Cancellations and changes must be made at least 10 days before the first day of any weeklong camp; a $40 cancellation fee applies.
