Volcano Venture

Join us for science and art adventures at the place where the mountain KABOOMs, rocks zoom, and flowers bloom.  Volcano Venture is a co-ed residential 1- or 2-night summer camp for youth ages 8-12.

“It’s such a great program. My daughter had an absolute blast. As a parent, I so appreciate that you offer such a learning-based, fun, affordable get-away.”
