Camp Wonderopolis

Camp Wonderopolis® is a free online out-of-school-time and 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 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 honed by the award-winning Wonderopolis.org!
