18 Science Summer Camps for Houston Kids

During the long weeks of summer, or any other school vacation, a good science camp can encourage your children's inventive, curious nature–without requiring messy science experiments conducted around the house. Enrolling in STEM, science, or tech summer camps can work both sides of your kid's brain, and Houston has plenty of these camps.

The camps below encourage children to think outside the box, foster a love of the sciences, and keep boredom at bay, all while presenting education in a fun way. For more summer and vacation camp ideas, check out our comprehensive camp guide and full directory of camp listings.

Not ready to attend camps in-person yet? We found some great virtual camp options as well!
