Educational Camps, Programs & Activities

Growing kids have growing minds so of course learning doesn’t stop just because school isn’t in session. In Springfield, kids can engage in a variety of educational programs and camps to continue their education through the summer months. From state-of-the-art library facilities and a comprehensive children’s science center to a myriad of park board, school district, and university-sponsored programs, you’ll find an abundance of enriching educational experiences and activities for children of all ages – and adults too! – year-round.
