Spring Break Camps

NCPRD is offering two spring break camps designed to introduce kids to the exciting world of science and ignite imaginations. Both classes held at the Milwaukie Community Center, located at 5440 S.E. Kellogg Creek Drive in Milwaukie. Register here.

Ages 5-7 (K-2nd grade)
Discover, create and play! All aboard the imagination train as your young scientist takes a journey around the world of science. Join in the fun as we make our own inventions, learn to cast fossils in the domain of the dinosaurs, explore the vastness of space and create a comet, watch the pull of gravity
with parachutes and feel the heaviness of the air pressure all around us.

Date/Time: Monday-Friday, March 21-25 | 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Class Fee: NCPRD, $187; non-resident, $234

Ages 7-12 (2nd-6th grade)
Blood spatter and brain matter, oh my! Not for the weak-hearted, this camp will let your scientist’s inner CSI scream! Enter the crime scene and see if your team can solve the crime by observing, interrogating and analyzing the evidence that you collect. Children experience how science is used to collect, analyze and understand what evidence is telling us about a crime scene.

Date/Time: Monday-Friday, March 21-25 | 1 – 4 p.m.
Class Fee: NCPRD, $185; non-resident, $234




What safety protocols are in place?
Protecting the health of our residents and staff is our top priority.
