Science Camps in New York

The DNA Learning Center is the world's first science center devoted entirely to genetics education. We offer fun and challenging camps for science enthusiasts entering 6th–12th grades at several locations in the New York metro area. Guided by experienced instructors, students use sophisticated laboratory and computer equipment to perform experiments several grade levels ahead of their peers.

The DNALC welcomed NBC's Dr. John Torres and crew to our camps to talk about DNA!

We welcome students to join the fun while engaging in a high-level scientific lab experience at academic summer camps. For more details, be sure to review our Camp Info.

In-person summer programs at our facilities in Brooklyn, Sleepy Hollow, and Cold Spring Harbor, New York include hands-on labs that give learners the opportunity to use modern molecular biology techniques and tools. Students can join camps like Fun with DNA or Genome Science.

Our On-Demand Virtual Camps use pre-recorded daily lessons and materials so students can complete the curriculum at their own pace. These video recorded camps can be taken by middle or high school students anywhere, including outside of the NYC and Long Island areas. To replicate the same hands-on science and enrichment learning, students receive kits that contain needed lab materials, camp-specific workbooks, and learning protocols. Students also have access to a DNALC educator so they can share their lab results, ask questions, or troubleshoot labs.

Why should Middle and High School Students attend a Science Summer Camp at a DNA Learning Center?

Students who attend our New York science camps can take advantage of benefits including:

  • Science expertise: The DNA Learning Center is a world-renowned institution for molecular biology and genetics education. We have over 35 years of expertise in education in these areas, offering students the opportunity to learn from the best.
  • Hands-on experimentation: All of our biology day camps for middle and high school students emphasize hands-on experimentation to get them involved and interested in what they are learning. Through our kits, even our virtual classes incorporate hands-on learning.
  • Advanced Placement Biology Labs: Our science summer camps for high school students cover some required labs from the national Advanced Placement Biology curriculum (AP Bio).
  • High-tech science experiments: Our science camps for kids are more than just fun activities. We incorporate technology used by real scientists in our experiments, allowing students to develop their understanding of biology and genetics concepts through lab investigations.
  • Creating friendships: Since students will be meeting other learners with similar interests, they'll be able to form connections and create friendships that can last a lifetime.
  • Accessibility: Since 1988, thousands of children have attended our science camps on Long Island, and can now join the STEM summer camp fun in NYC and Westchester.

Learn more about our School Year Programs

During the year, we invite students to learn and immerse themselves in the world of biology and genetics through an on-site visit to one of our DNA Learning Centers or one of our On-Demand virtual camps.

We offer monthly Saturday DNA! sessions for families during the academic year; put some DNA in your day! Check out the current schedule!

Are you an educator ready to get your students involved in hands-on science activities at a world-class lab? Request more information about our field trips in NYC, Westchester, or on Long Island today.
