    Bit to Do

    While school is out and summer is in, The Kentucky Science Center is offering camps to keep your pre- kindergartener’s minds engaged throughout the summer.

    “Recent national studies show that students who attend camps like ours demonstrate marked improvements in attitudes and motivation about learning,” Science Center Executive Director Joanna E. Haas said. “The benefits of out-of-school camps extend well into the regular school year, and have had tangible connections to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.”

    The School’s Out Summer Camps run Monday to Friday each week from June 1 to August 3. Camp times run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Regular full-week camps cost $195 for members and $220 for nonmembers, full-week specialty camps cost $245 for members, and $270 for nonmembers.
