SMLI SUMMER CAMP
WHO WE ARE:
SMLI has provided more than HALF A MILLION children with supplemental science programs since its inception more than 50 years ago. In SMLI’s summer science camp, children’s innate curiosity about all things science is ignited into a passion. Indeed, many now-grown alumni of our camp are professionally engaged in every scientific discipline under the sun. Last year saw the arrival of the first wave of third-generation SMLI campers. The parents and grandparents of these “legacy” campers enjoyed their SMLI experiences so much that they wanted the same for their children and grandchildren! Feedback was great; they weren’t disappointed!
WHERE WE ARE:
Located on the Leeds Pond Preserve in Plandome Manor, SMLI’s address is 1526 North Plandome Road, Manhasset, NY 11030.
