Adventure in the Arts



CMoW Summer Art Campers will explore a variety of mediums. We will look at the styles of many famous artists as our inspirations. Projects will include painting, collage, drawing, sculpture, and more! The artists will participate in in-depth projects over the week and create their own "masterpieces." In addition to art, we will play games, explore nature, and visit the Children's Museum.

Monday, June 22nd - Friday, June 26th

Critter crazy

Are you looking for the ultimate experience for your animal lover? This exciting week is full of unique animal encounters to encourage and grow your child's knowledge about many of our furry, and scaled, animal kingdom friends. Kids will spend their morning learning about the habitat, diet, and care of various critters. Then, each afternoon, there will be up close meetings with some of the species studied. These critters may include lizards, turtles, snakes, birds, cats, and dogs!

Coastal Connections 



Are you ready to make waves this summer? The Coastal Connections summer camp focuses on the ocean and all the wonders it holds! Learn about the many different landscapes and environments in the ocean, and some of the creatures that call these diverse areas home! We will host many interactive activities as a basis for learning more about the marine environment that is right in your backyard! The campers will create art, conduct science experiments and get to play in the Museum - all with the goal of learning more about the ocean and helping every camper have a better "coastal connections!"

You Are What You Eat



Nutrition and good lifestyle habits does not have to be boring! Learn how our body converts what we eat into energy, and how we can see those results in many different ways. This camp is about tying together "eating, playing and learning" for kids. This camp will make use of our new exhibit that will open this summer focusing on teaching kids about healthy lifestyle choices.
