Goals

The Bakkens education programs integrate science, technology, and the humanities in dynamic ways to inspire and empower youth. Maintaining a low adult to camper ratio ensures that each student receives individual attention and support. Summer camps at The Bakken aim to create a community of creative minded students who all share a common interest in making and doing.


Activities

Summer Science Camp is a week-long program where students to design and build their own inventions, practice creative thinking skills, make magic tricks, and play games.
