Vacation Week Programs at Stony Brook

Campers at Mass Audubon Stony Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

For children ages 5–10

Your children don't have to go far away to experience a new world or discover something new about themselves. Just send them to Stony Brook during school vacation weeks—we know how to make learning fun!

Children are divided into two age groups (ages 5–6 and ages 7–10) so each day's curriculum can be customized for age-appropriate learning. 

All programs run 9:00 am-3:30 pm each day.

Sign up for single sessions or join us for all four days!

Don't anticipate—participate! We keep the activities a surprise, but each day you can expect to become a different type of scientist: meteorologist, chemist, ecologist, or astronomer. Kids will have fun conducting experiments and practicing the skills needed to be the best scientists they can be!
