Come grow and play with us!

CAMPS FOR YOUNG BIOLOGISTS AND ENGINEERS

Are you ready for an adventure?


Engage in eye-opening experiments, learn about the natural world, and make new friends this summer at Metamora Park District's Summer Camps. The Metamora Park District offers two camps for young scientists between the ages of 4 and 13.


With a curriculum developed by certified science teachers, our camps engage kids with inquiry-based learning activities. Campers will have the opportunity to spend their summer building rockets, studying the secret world of bugs, learning how to predict the weather, and so much more! Each week will have a different theme, so campers are welcome to sign up for as many sessions as they would like.

Have an endless imagination? If you like to play pretend, come join us as we use our imagination and play outside at Black Partridge Park.
