Kids at The Great Adventure Lab's metro D.C. STEM summer camps making marshmallow shootersThe Great Adventure Lab's metro DC STEM summer camps are a blast for girls and boys!

My child repeatedly has told me…”Mom, I am so glad that you signed me up for this camp. Thank you.” Also, he has said repeatedly…”I cannot wait to go to camp tomorrow. I wonder what we will do.”

PRICING for Silver Spring & Potomac camps

*Girls Get Science camp has the same curriculum as our regular camps, but all campers are girls. Our GGS camp will be held in the same venue as our co-ed camp, BUT the camps will be conducted separately. Students from the two camps will not mix.


Our science, robotics and engineering summer camps are so fun,

kids have no idea how much they’re learning!

Boys playing with Mindstorms at The Great Adventure Lab's STEM summer campThis year we’re offering some AWESOME new STEM activities as well as some of our time-tested  favorites. Join us for LEGO robotics, bridge building, [safe] explosions and huge fun! This year, our older campers will also explore the world of 3D Design and Printing,  video game programming, electronics, Out of this World Engineering and Invention Lab. Our younger campers will  do some phenomenal engineering with LEGOs  and will also explore a whole world of Nature Science and more. We operate the most fun, educational STEM camps in the D.C. area!  And no, our students to not sit like zombies all day staring at computer screens. We do science OUTDOORS when possible (and yes, we enjoy our air conditioning when it’s super hot outside!).

Check out our pricing! And rest assured. Our summer camps are staffedby many of your favorite instructors!

We’re offering two unique weeks of projects:

Curriculum A and Curriculum B. If you’d like to sign up for more than 1 week, be sure to choose one week A and one week B. They can be taken in any order. The classes are the same, but the projects are different!

Students who took either or both weeks of our STEM summer camps last year may take either or both weeks this year. In Lego Robotics, Video Game Programming and 3-D design, repeat students can move on to higher levels; the rest of our classes are new with all new projects.

How do we group campers? By age, interest and ability.

2015 camp classes will have plenty of new classes and projects!
