Youth summer camps

We have some awesome summer camp opportunities for children ages 6-9, 10-13, and 14-17. Our camps allow your child to build their creative thinking and innovation skills as they explore topics in art, science, and technology. Camps run Monday-Thursday, 8:30am-3:30pm during specific dates. Tuition ranges from $150-$250 per week, depending on the camp topic.

Adventure Days

No school?  No problem!  Adventure Days (for ages 6-12) occur on select days when Dubuque Community Schools are not in session. Adventure days include two different guided learning topics (such as robotics, painting, pottery, rock climbing, and more), as well as opportunities to freely explore our Adventure Labs, all supervised by our engaging and fun staff.  Your child can design, build, test, and explore several new ideas using a wide variety of materials, all in a single day. Cost is $65 per child.



We offer free admission plus curriculum & activity guides to schools who bring students while school is in session.


Save on admission by booking a Party & Group Rental. This is a popular option for birthday parties, church & homeschool groups, family gatherings, daycare outings, and scout troops.

Team Building Activities

There's no better place to foster communication, improve cooperation, and develop an innovation mindset through hands-on, play-based activities. Use our self-guided team building challenges or have one of our staff lead your group's experience.

Girls who Code

We've partnered with Girls Who Code, a national non-profit organization who's mission is to close the gender-gap in the tech industry.

Girls Who Code's curriculum is designed for students with a wide range of computer science experience. Activities are offered for girls with ZERO computer science experience all the way up to activities that introduce college-level concepts.
