The term “science camp” cannot be narrowed down to a precise, objective definition one can find in an encyclopedia. Rather, the term is used to describe a wide variety of formats focusing on every aspect of science and engineering such as robotics, chemistry, physics, math, sustainable energy, the environment, zoo animals, architecture, space science, and dinosaur fossils to name just a few.

Moreover, science camps can vary from kids exploring centripetal force and kinetic and potential energy while riding a rollercoaster in an amusement park to young people building and programming robots during a residential summer camp. Science camps are often characterized as informal science learning and is one of the most effective ways people learn science, and certainly the programs use fun and play to help teach and introduce science concepts. Science camps can be both part of the curriculum in terms of out-of-school activities or they can be conducted in the students’ own time, e.g. weekends or holidays.

Science camps are organized through various organisations, which can have various concepts of science camps, and furthermore the purpose of conducting camps, the financial aspects as well as the target group of the science camps can differ significantly.

Hereafter a reasonably definition can be next one:

A science camp is a residential science education program which offers various activities for young people between ages 6-20 aimed at supporting and strengthen their science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, and which lasts at least two days with one overnight (usually) within the camp premises.
