STEM Summer Camps for Philadelphia Area Kids

Camps that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) or STEAM (which includes Art) give kids the best of both worlds: great education in the form of summertime fun. STEM activities boost brain power, creative thinking, and problem solving while kids have fun designing video games and building Lego robots! There are many STEM-themed summer camps to keep children engaged, entertained, and educated throughout Philadelphia. If you have a kid interested in science, you are in luck. We have rounded up some options that are sure to excite the minds of the future.

Looking for more summer camp options? Browse our Summer Camp Guide and learn about camps for art, horseback riding, sports, and preschoolers, too.
