We will be holding a limited number of summer day camps for students this year. The number of students will be limited, and some of the camps will be held in a hybrid format, with in-person sessions at the Planetarium on Monday and Friday, and Tuesday through Thursday sessions conducted on Zoom and Google Meets. The health of your kids is very important to us.
