Wish fulfillment


The camps include a commemorative T-shirt, lunch and hands-on science experiences.

Did you ever wish you could launch your own rocket? Build your own roller coaster? Make your own slime?

It’s not too late for children from first to sixth grade to sign up to do these and other fun activities, during two more five-day summer camps at Science Museum Oklahoma, 2100 N.E. 52nd.

The science camp, “Did You Ever?,” includes activities with speakers and exhibits to teach children about chemistry, biology and other kinds of science. Registration for its fourth session, which lasts from July 11 to 15, ends Monday. The registration for week six, from July 25 to 29, ends July 18.

Costs are $200 per child for museum members and $235 for nonmembers. More than 25 children registered and attended the first two weeks, museum spokesman Alex Mattison said. Week five is already full as well.

Nearly one-third of kids who come to the the camp return for at least another week, he said, noting that seeing the children get excited about science — from petting lizards and learning about tornadoes — was the ultimate reward.

“It’s really neat to see them go from, ‘Yeah, I’m not really sure about camp,’ to every day when they go home, just unloading everything on their parents,” Mattison said. “They don’t want to stop going to camp, which is a really nice thing to see.”
