The Adler Planetarium connects people to the Universe and each other. Whether it is introducing a guest to the Ring Nebula, a neighborhood school to a community partner, a research team to a network of citizen scientists, or one staff member to another, the Adler’s focus on meaningful connections dates back nearly a century.

Do Science This Summer at Adler Summer Camps!

Your campers won’t ride any horses or capture any flags at the Adler, but they will have the whole Universe at their fingertips. With tools like telescopes, programmable robots, and high-altitude balloons—and new friends around every corner—Adler summer campers share adventures of cosmic proportions.

The Adler Planetarium offers a variety of unique summer day-camp experiences for campers entering preschool through 9th grade. Young space and technology enthusiasts can use their imaginations, get creative, and explore their Universe together just like scientists do.
