The educational opportunities and diversified exposure to new experiences are absolutely high-level on this program. The titled sleeping on a submarine piece turned out to be our least-favorite part even though it was what attracted us to the program. That was an experience we are glad we had, but won't repeat. Everything else in the program was better than expected and definitely worth doing again! The hotel and meals were excellent.

We loved it! My grandson loved the jet boat ride and the hands-on activities. I enjoyed the submarine tour and sleeping in the sub. We had bottom bunks which had more air. OMSI is amazing!!! Time there was so much fun. The kids had hands on labs and free time to explore. Fun! Fun!, fun!,,

This program had some real highlights--the night on the submarine and the jetboat ride met very high expectations. The lab experiences at OMSI were generally very good, and the OMSI staff and volunteers very approachable and knowledgeable. The program had a few organizational shortcomings, but overall my grandson and I found it a great experience.
