Brook to Bay: (Codes 201 & 206) Brook to Bay explores aquatic animals and habitats of the Hudson River using science, art and nature. Be ready to get a little wet and dirty while discovering what lives right outside our doors. Our living collections, nature trails and daily activities including fish printing, kick nets, and learning about scientific equipment will make this program a blast.

Master Builders: (Codes 202 & 207) Do you like to build things? Can you imagine new and exciting things to build? We love to build at CMOST! This week we will explore a variety of building materials from Lego to Skyline Toolbox, K’nex to craft sticks and so many things in between. Bring your imagination and get ready to design and build!

Full STE(a)M Ahead: (Codes 203 & 208) Join CMOST staff while we go on a STE(a) M 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!

Animation Creation: (Codes 204 & 209) 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!

Science All-Stars: (Code 210) The All Stars Camp is CMOST’s annual “best of “camp week. During this week campers will participate in the voted best experiments and activities. The “best of” activities will be selected from the previous nine weeks of summer camp. This will leave all campers with a real highlight reel of our favorite experiments and activities.
