This camp brings together curious thinkers who love to tinker, design, build, take-apart, launch, hover, create, and make a mess in the name of science!  We asked some of our favorite Collaboratorians throughout the summer which experiences they loved the most and we’ve put together this “Best of…” from all the camps this summer!   Here are some of the highlights that campers will be able to experience:

August 5th – 9th, 9am – 3pm  will be open to campers ages 6-12. Campers can enjoy one to five days of camp! Join all five days for the best deal!

Microscopic Monday – Come explore the world of small things! We will look create things on a small scale, enjoy our liquid nitrogen “micro-scoopic” ice cream, and try to live life on the smaller side!

Technology Tuesday – On Tuesday we will spend our day diving into technology! We will be coding with robots Dash and Sphero, exploring stop motion, and playing with circuits.

Water Wednesday – Wednesday we will enjoy all things water! Have a water fight with our very own chemistry made water balloons, bath bombs, and learn about the importance of water in our world! Dress for a mess!

Theory Thursday – We will explore downtown Papillion with an engineering scavenger hunt, outer space and the world around us using Scientific Theories that have made understanding it all possible!

Fluid Friday – During Fluid Friday we will explore some of our favorite “fluid projects!” Come make fluid acrylic art with our chemistry and art poured painting, come explore non-Newtonian fluids as we make a kiddy pool full of Oobleck! Dress for a mess!!

*Age ranges are recommended ages.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Anna ( and she’d be happy to help you determine if it makes sense for children outside that range.

Before participating in the first day of camp, students must return the signed Family Information Form, which will be emailed prior to the week of camp.  Please send campers with a sack lunch and a water bottle.  Light snacks will be served mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

If this class sounds perfect for your child but this date doesn’t work for you, please contact us at in case another section is added this summer!

Contact us at if you are interested in an early drop-off at 8am or late pick-up at 5pm option.  If there is interest from multiple families, we’ll contact all participants to offer the option for an additional fee.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed – If after the first day of camp, you decide this is not a great fit for your child, please contact Anna by phone or in person to discuss either a full refund or registration in another Collaboratory camp instead.  Collaboratory reserves the right to cancel (with 100% refund) this session if enrollment is less than 6 kids.  We believe strongly that one of the most important elements to learning at the Collaboratory is the collaboration and teamwork with other students.  We want to ensure there are enough students to create a powerful team and to grow our thinking power!
