Summer Discovery Camps


Summer Discovery Camps will not be offered this summer.

Thanks for your interest and please check back for other events and programs that will be coming Summer 2015!



Your child is creative and energetic! The CMC has the right combination of hands-on learning activities to inspire your child to have a fun and imaginative summer.

All of our multidisciplinary Discovery Camps offer science experiments, art exploration, music and movement and free-play in museum exhibits and outdoor garden. Camps welcome 4, 5 and 6 year old children. A multi-age curriculum has been developed that will encourage teamwork and creativity.

“We were very impressed with the camp. The instructor’s enthusiasm was infectious and our son had a great time. It was well organized and the museum provided great communication before, during and after the camp. Thanks!” ~Parent of CMC Camper
