Holiday Camps

Our camps are the perfect balance between learning and playing. Children will spend the day learning about STEM subjects, but also playing exciting games, making science experiments and having fun with their camp mates.

The camps are organized for a duration of 5 consecutive days, and it is not possible to book individual days.
The schedule of the camps is structured as follows:

Morning Session:

from 09:00 to 12:00 –  LEGO Robotics

Afternoon Session:

from 14:00 to 17:00 – STEM activities, science experiments and computer programming.

Parents can register either for full days or half day options. For for specific drop-off and pick-up times, please refer to the dedicated pages under each location.

Every junior scientist should try!

Additional challenges will be set to suit camper’s abilities. Camp themes are different from weekly clubs and workshops


Please note that the participation fees may slightly vary across different locations. Therefore, we kindly request interested individuals to refer to the event descriptions of their preferred locations for specific fee details. For comprehensive information about the camps at our STEM Centre in Zurich Hardbrucke, please click here. For details regarding camps in other locations, please visit this page.

Snacks and Food:

Campers make a short pause for snack time during the morning session and another during the afternoon session. For those enrolled in the full-day option, there will be a longer lunch break and playtime between the two sessions. Our instructors will always supervise the children during breaks and playtime.

Snacks and lunch are not provided.

Our snacks, lunch, and free time will be outside if weather permits. Some locations have playgrounds and others have fields for free play. No screens allowed during breaks 🙂


For videos of our previous camps, please check our social channels:


We normally have 1 instructor for every 5-6 children for our younger students and 1 for every 7 children for the older students. We also have one instructor who moves between the groups as required to give additional help. This allows us to give the children the necessary level of attention and also allows us to take the children outside for play breaks at lunchtime safely.

Our camp activities use the knowledge of the previous days as the week progresses; therefore we cannot offer individual days.

We follow the Kanton Zurich Guidelines and the Coronavirus protection measurements for schools.

We encourage the children to wash their hands regularly: before and after snack or lunch or after visiting the park at lunchtime.

We remind parents that the doors of the camps open at 09:00 and that Drop Off is between 09:00 and 09:15.

Pick Up is from 11:45 to 12:00 for the morning session, and from 16:45 to 17:00 for the afternoon or full day sessions.

Early drop off and late pick up is possible but must be booked in advance and extra fees will be applied. Please contact the Little Scientists Team for more information.

If the camp is not informed in advance of late collection then parents/carers may be charged a late collection fee of 5 CHF for every 5 min over time.
