Three boys at OMSI camp-in

Balance, speed and precision are all the rage during OMSI Camp-Ins this season! From extreme sports to amazing scientific discoveries, find out how scientists use technology, engineering and science to make us faster, quicker and stronger than ever before. Plan an OMSI Camp-In for team building, an end-of-the-year celebration or just for fun! OMSI Camp-Ins are guaranteed to be a unique experience that’s warm, dry and exciting any time of year! Activities are aligned with state content standards for science and provide plenty of opportunity for team building and problem solving.

Museum Camp-Ins include dinner, snack and continental breakfast; film; submarine tour; and museum admission the following day. We ask that all groups provide at least a 1:5 adult to child ratio. Combine your Museum Camp-In with additional attractions while you're here, like planetarium shows or reserved labs.
