At Camp Imaginarium, we believe in hands-on learning adventures that unleash a child’s imagination! This camp is centered on STEM! What is STEM you ask? Science, technology, engineering, math and so much more! Kids will build new friendships as they experience interactive activities, learn how things work by taking apart mechanical objects, creating new inventions themselves, dabbling in technology, and even taking field trips around Siouxland. Our goal is that kids leave Camp Imaginarium with new skills, new passions, and the confidence to take risks and try new ideas!

Campers must bring a sack lunch (morning and afternoon snack provided), water bottle, swimsuit/towel, and their imaginations!
