Virtual On-Demand Camps

Participate from home with recorded materials

Student building a DNA model from home

Use pre-recorded daily lessons and materials to complete an entire camp curriculum at your own pace, whenever it’s convenient. In On-Demand Camps:

  • Students have private access to daily sessions pre-recorded by DNALC educators allows for easy, at-home viewing.
  • A kit containing lab materials and camp workbooks and protocols can be picked up at the DNALC or shipped to your home+.
  • Office hours for each camp will be held once per week on a regular schedule throughout the summer to allow campers to connect with a DNALC educator to ask questions, troubleshoot labs, and share results.
  • The DNA Barcoding and Genome Science camps require that DNA samples isolated at home be dropped off or shipped back to the DNALC for processing by specified dates. The cost of shipping is to be covered by the student and their family. A link will be made available to keep campers updated on sample processing and to see results.

When an On-Demand Camp application is received, registered campers will receive an email with kit pick-up information or shipment status and instructions on accessing the camp videos and Google Classroom.

All online recordings will be accessible in the parent/guardian DNALC Summer Camps account for 60 days from the date of registration.

+ Shipping costs to locations outside the US are not included in camp pricing and shipping costs will be added to the camp fee when registering.
