The DNALC is the world's first science center devoted entirely to genetics education. Each summer, we offer fun and challenging camps at each of our locations for science enthusiasts entering 6th–12th grade. Guided by experienced instructors, students use sophisticated laboratory and computer equipment to perform experiments several grade levels ahead of their peers.

The DNALC continues to closely monitor the spread of the SARS-CoV2 virus and Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). We are closing all of our centers as of Monday, March 16, 2020.

Since we cannot predict the duration of our closure at this time, we continue to accept registrations for summer camps. To ensure that we reserve places in the camp on a first come, first served basis, payment is still required at the time of registration. If we cannot continue with the summer camp program, all tuition will be refunded. You will receive a credit on your credit card if it has been less than 120 days since payment, otherwise a check will be issued.

We look forward to a summer in which all of our campers can pursue their interests in DNA science. Stay well!
