Science-focused day camps for students in grades K-8. 

Looking for a great way to keep your kids engaged in learning and fun over spring break? Greenbush has you covered. This year’s spring break day camps all focus on sparking an interest in science through hands-on activities that would be impossible -- or in some cases, just too messy -- to enjoy at home.
