Science summer camps on Bainbridge Island!

I am ecstatic to be offering 6 weeks of science infused, fun filled summer camps on Bainbridge Island this year! I have created 3 new camps with 3 favorites that are returning this year, many with updated activities. Scroll down for camp details and descriptions.

Each week campers will enjoy a new theme while you enjoy flexible scheduling to fit your needs. Campers can come for the directed projects in the mornings from 9am to 1pm and choose to stay until 4pm in my freebuilding tinkerlabs. These Tinkerlabs will have themed project ideas for students to pursue if interested – or they can choose to build a Monitor habitat, zombie crushing arm, perler bead projects, and much more!

Note: These camps cater to students entering 1st-5th grades. Have a student in 8th-12th grade looking for volunteer hours, internship opportunities, or even a summer job? Contact me at

    Dr. Erica is such a great part of our community. My daughter has done multiple camps and after school sessions with her and I’m blown away with what she learns and experiences.

    Both Mission to Mars and Light & Lasers were fun, engaging camps. My daughter brought home cool projects and explained to me how they worked. Great camps!

    My sons really enjoyed their 4 sessions of camp! Dr. Erica always had new projects for them to explore and they enjoyed telling me about the things they learned. They also enjoyed having choices in the afternoon to pursue what interested them.

    We loved Rosie Research camp! Our daughter was so proud of what she learned and achieved with Dr. Erica’s projects. The daily recaps were a wonderful peek into the campers’ days, and they helped guide follow up conversations too.
