We are thankful to INFINITY Science Center for sponsoring the STEM Camp section in our 2022 Ultimate Summer Camp Guide.
STEM camps help to start an early understanding in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Prepare your child to think outside the box as they connect these skills to discover lots of possibilities.
