Leonardo Da Vinci is the inspiration for integrating science and art summer day camp experiences at DaVinci Experience® where we bring science and art ALIVE for children. We explore exciting themes in depth through hands-on art activities, science experiments and outdoor games. Our child-oriented curriculum encourages children to actively explore and experiment under the supervision of our certified teachers. Our experienced educators encourage critical thinking, problem solving and team building with an emphasis on safety and fun.
