Welcome to Camp Wonderopolis

Camp WonderopolisTM is the free online summer-learning destination that’s full of fun, interactive STEM and literacy-building topics boosted by Maker experiments!

Keeping kids and their families learning together throughout the summer and out-of-school time, Camp Wonderopolis can help build vocabulary, background knowledge in science, reading comprehension, critical thinking, and other literacy skills along the way.

When you register as a Camper (kids of all ages) or Counselor (parents, community and library program staff, teachers), you’ll enjoy learning through wonder—an approach created and honed by the award-winning Wonderopolis.org!

2016

This year’s theme, “Flex Your Wonder,” is full of health-and fitnessfocused Wonders that tap into real-world learning. Give your Wonder a workout and explore topics from the Olympics to nutrition and beyond.
