March 14 is often celebrated as pi day (March 14th being 3.14, of course!). Pi is often thought of as a quirky concept that is only interesting to scientists. Most of the uses of π are in geometry and trigonometry, but advanced math concepts like statistics, complex numbers, and probability all rely on concepts […]
How would you define a year? To many people, it’s the time from birthday to birthday, or it might be the days from January 1 to December 31. This is known as a calendar year. A year might also be defined as the time it takes for the earth to orbit the sun. This […]
It’s almost that time of year, where ghouls and ghosts get together to enjoy some delicious treats! But what’s Halloween without an awesome pumpkin carving?
This summer we launched hundreds of rockets, engineered thousands of robotic dinosaurs, traveled millions of miles into space, and wielded countless super powers as our newest crop of campers discovered the amazing power of science!
August is here and camp is in full swing! Robots are battling, music is being made, rockets are soaring, and superhero cars are saving the day. We are having a blast!
Destination Science has operated with two essential principles since day one:
1. Develop confidence and enthusiasm about science as kids gain knowledge about how the world works around them.
2. Build character and skills for life – including curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, cooperation, persistence and more!
Let’s take a look at exactly how we accomplish these two goals and why it is so important for each kid to leave our camp feeling confident, enthusiastic, and more skilled than when they arrived.
Every December, snow falls around the country and fireplaces get their pits filled with logs and embers. Winter is the coldest time of the year, bringing us closer together with holidays (and presents), but also plays the largest part in keeping us in our houses. From rain and sleet to storms and slush, the outdoors takes a turn for the frigid three months out of the year, if not longer!
So what makes Winter the coolest season of the year? Science, of course!
As Thanksgiving approaches, the team at Destination Science has put science to the test to learn about our Thanksgiving traditions and to debunk common Thanksgiving myths.

Sure, you’ll find traditional camp activities here. But with themes like The Ultimate Survival Zone, Astronaut Adventure Camp, and more, it’s safe to say this camp is anything but typical.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Nope, it’s a rocket! Last week, I got the chance to visit—and launch a rocket at—Destination Science Camp’s Rye […]
