Science Fun

Single Day Mini-Camps

All Single Day and Week Long Cary Camps are held at:
The Science Fun Lab:
111 James Jackson Ave # 107
Cary, NC 27513

School is out! The weather is hot, mosquitoes are abundant, the pool is crowded, the beach is far, and you’ve reached your screen time limit. What is there to do now?! Join us for some EXCITING and FUN science at the lab!

Can’t do a full week of camp, but still looking for a few days to have your child experiment with science? Then bring’em on by! We will have all sorts of fun science going on at the lab at our Single Day Summer Camps!

The beauty of the Single Day Summer Camps compared to the week long camp is the flexibility. Only pay for the days you want to come. If you can only bring your junior scientists Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, then do just that. Can only bring them in the morning? Or maybe just the afternoon? There is an option for that too. Check out our Schedule below. We’ll see you there!

Limited seats available, so register today!

Single Day Camps are separate camp experiences from our Week-Long camps. Junior scientists will be in separate labs. Each week will have a theme, but the daily activities will vary throughout the week.
