Topics:

August 5 - 9th Animation Creation: Make a movie from start to finish using stop motion animation! Campers will create a storyboard, build a set, develop scene transitions, and edit a film to perfection.

August 12 - 16th The Great Outdoors: Are you in the mood for a natural science adventure? With the best of ecology and biology all in one week, we will explore plants, trees, streams, rivers and animals. With plenty of outdoor time (weather permitting) and hands on activities, this will be a great week!

August 19 - 23rd Science Detectives: Put on your detective hat and get to work in this fun camp on crime science! Campers will get an introduction to crime solving skills as we explore the art of fingerprinting, the power of observation and the chance to solve a “crime”.

August 26 - 30th Truth is Weirder than Fiction: If you think Bigfoot is cool then this camp is for you. We will look at some commonly held notions, some stranger than true ideas and some just plain weird myths. Can you figure out which are fact and which are fiction?

Junior - grades 1-4 

7/8 – 7/12 – Dinosaur Detectives: What do we really know about the dinosaurs of long ago? In this camp children will get hands-on as they experiment with measuring the size of dinosaurs, practicing their dino excavating skills and becoming junior paleontologists. We will even learn about the dinosaurs’ reptilian cousins that live at CMOST.

7/15 – 7/19 – Insect Investigations: What is an insect?  What makes them so cool?  Join us as we explore insects from top to bottom.  We will discover insects that are good for the environment and find out why. We may even come across some insects that are not helpful to the area they live in. Dress to head outside and examine insects in their natural environment, and learn ways to protect insects that are doing their jobs. Stories, creative activities and motion are included each day.

7/22 – 7/26 – Full STEAM Ahead: Let’s go on a STEAM adventure. Each day will be packed with fun activities that help us learn all about science, technology, engineering, art and math. Experiments, art projects, creating, building, tinkering and a few new ways of looking at math will make this a week packed with excitement

Senior Grades 5-9

7/8 – 7/12 – Can you dig it? An archeological adventure: Join our resident archaeology/anthropology expert as we learn the importance of discovering our past. We will examine artifacts, find out where they fit in history and then experience the process of a real archaeological dig. Campers will use their discoveries to set up a temporary exhibit to share with our visitors.

7/15 – 7/19 – Animation Creation: Make a movie from start to finish using stop motion animation! Campers will create a storyboard, build a set, develop scene transitions, and edit a film to perfection. At the end of the week we will present a screening of our movies for families and museum visitors. See you at the movies!
