Learning about science, technology, engineering and math can be quite exciting and open up a child’s world in so many ways, so we wanted to present you with 10 science and STEM camps for kids in NYC.
There are so many things children can learn by starting to study these fields, especially if this is done through games and other fun activities. As it is, New York City offers dozens of options for those looking to enroll their children into this type of summer camp, with weekly tuitions that go for quite a few hundred dollars. Overnight options are available for older kids, but for the most part, you’ll get to take your kid to camp in the morning and get them back in the evening, all after a day spent full of interesting activities.
If you hope that one day your child may choose a profession that involves science, technology, engineering or math, you may want to test things out a bit, take them to a camp like this and see if it sparks their interest. Of course, only if they haven’t already expressed an interest in these fields, which makes things easier from the get-go.

In order to create our list of science and STEM camps for kids in NYC we looked high and low after a bunch of these summer camps using Google, of course, and great database for everything NYC has to offer on Class Curious. With a list in hand, we checked to see the age group the camp is dedicated to – the more age groups it covers, the more points the camp received. Then, we checked out just how expensive a week spent at one of these camps is and handed out points by rewarding the cheapest of them on a sliding scale. We also rewarded extra points to those camps that offer a multitude of options to choose from, whether that’s robotics, engineering, coding, or playing Sherlock Holmes.
That being said, here are 10 science and STEM camps for kids in NYC that make us wish we were children again just so we could attend too.
