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.


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. During the week every camper will design, make, and take home his or her own unique project. We provide a large variety of materials and tools for project building. Campers will exercise their critical thinking and creative skills through a variety of problem solving challenges and hands on activities.
