Summer Camp


CMOST Summer Camp is great for scientific exploration, and a wonderful place where children will have the opportunity to reconnect with old friends and meet new friends, gain confidence in their skills, and feel good about who they are while learning new things!

CMOST provides an environment that fosters scientific creativity with hands-on activities all done within a secure infrastructure, and under knowledgeable guidance of our educators. Children are encouraged to find their science and technology passions on their own terms in an informal educational setting without deadlines, homework, or exams.

At camp children play and learn together where trial, failure and creative experimentation is encouraged.
