Get excited! El Paso Exploreum Summer camps are almost here!

Camps will run June 16-Aug-22.

Space Exploration- With our new NASA partnership, children can expect a camp that is out of this world! Learn about constellations and different planets inside our Digitarium. Construct your own telescope and planetarium to take home. Speak with real people at NASA, maybe even an astronaut! Learn how astronauts train for space and more!   

June 16-20 AM session, July 21-25 PM session, August 4-8 AM session                                                                 space                                scientist

Crazy Scientists- This is always a favorite! Our crazy scientists should come expecting messy experiments. Blow up a volcano, design and test experiments, and make gooey slime. Think you know what a plant needs to survive? Test your theory! What happens when you mix Mentos with a bottle of soda? What if you mix formula A with formula B? Test everything and have a crazy, explosively fun time with us!

June 16-20 PM session, July 14-18 PM session, August 18-22 AM session


 Krafty Kids- We always have campers who can’t get enough of the arts and crafts! This year, we have a camp where you’ll do more than enough! Make your own paint and clay. Draw a design on special paper and watch it shrink and harden in the oven right before your eyes! Make instruments, jewelry, and so much more! Children will be coming home with arms full of cool crafts, so be ready, parents!

June 23-27 PM afternoon, July 21-25 AM session, August 18-22 PM session

 Robotics- Are you fascinated by robots? You aren’t the only one! So many smart kids are getting involved with robotics. This means designing, engineering, building, and testing robots! Learn about the mechanics behind robots and meet other youth who are designing advanced robots and winning local and state competitions. How can robots change our future? You could be the next robotic genius!

July 7-11 PM session, July 14-18 AM session, August 11-15 PM session


 I Can Do It Myself- We are all for children learning by hands-on exploration! Is your child tired of being told they can’t do something because they’re a kid? In this camp, children will learn valuable life skills, and do it themselves! They’ll start with building their own bird house and making their own ice cream! We have several other surprises in store for them, but we won’t be the ones making anything for them!*Children will be wearing safety glasses and using tools under adult supervision

 What Will YOU Be When You Grow Up?- We have never offered this camp, but we’ve had SO many children request it that we caved in! What they will be when they grow up is a huge mystery to many children, and a dream to others. Visit a fire station and meet real firemen! Learn about what happens behind the scenes during plays. Have you always wanted to be a famous athlete? Visit the Chihuahua’s stadium and see what it’s like. We have five days packed full of learning and fun! *Children will be walking outside for several blocks with adults

June 23-27 AM session, July 28-Aug 1 AM session, August 4-8 PM session


Camps run from 9  am-12 noon and 1-4 pm. Campers staying all day should bring a sack lunch.

Camp cost is $100 ($85 for military). Additional camps are $80. Sign up for all 6 camps for $500 (a $600 value)!

In response to many parents’ requests, we are offering extended care for $10/week or $3/day to pick up your child at 5 pm from the afternoon camp.
