The Miami Science Museum is gearing up for its 47th Annual Summer Camp! During the eight one-week camp sessions, kids aged 4-14 will enjoy engaging, unique, fun-filled experiences including ecology, robotics, engineering, technology, field trips and more. While camp activities will be specific to the session chosen each week, each class will feature science lessons, projects, experiments, and crafts, interspersed with time to explore the museum galleries, planetarium or theater shows, and a 30-minute outdoor PE time. Campers in the 2nd through 8th grade groups will also go on field trips.
Classes are offered in the following age categories (campers must be entering the grade(s) of the group in August 2013):
Pre-K (age 4 as of August 2013; must be potty-trained and able to handle all aspects of using the restroom alone)
2nd & 3rd Grades
4th & 5th Grades
6th, 7th & 8th Grades
For a complete listing of classes for each age category, visit www.miamisci.org/summercamp/classdesc.php.
Instructor to camper ratio is 1:10. Lead teachers are certified teachers with over 5-10 years of teaching experience in Miami-Dade County public and private schools, who will deliver hands-on, interactive learning. Each lead teacher has experience working with children in the grade level to which they are assigned. Each class will also have a teaching aide.
Campers should bring their own lunch. Two healthy snacks will be provided each day.
Miami Science Museum 2013 Summer Camp is made possible by the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners. The Childrenâ€™s Trust provides funding for scholarships to non-profit organizations that enable abused, neglected, and disadvantaged children to attend summer camp classes.
