Enjoy a summer of science at one of the MOST’s three different educational summer camps for kids. We have two weeks of astronaut camp for different age groups and a one-week free environmental camp for students who just completed eighth grade.
Mission to Mars
Two sessions: July 18-22 for children 7 to 10 & Aug. 8-12 for children 11 to 14
These astronauts-in-training will explore current and past NASA projects to inspire their natural curiosity. Campers will complete an astronaut training obstacle course, design a Mars lander, get engrossed in the stars during a planetarium show, and experience a taste of what it’s like to live in space. They’ll also have plenty of time to explore the museum.
- The cost is $250 per camper for MOST members and $280 per camper for non-member
- A non-refundable $50 deposit is needed at registration to hold a place; balance is due before camp starts
- Camps run 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday
- A healthy mid-morning snack is included but campers must bring their lunch
- Camps are limited to 22 children, and registration is first come, first served
UPDATE: Our first session is sold out! Hurry to sign up for the second session before that’s filled, too.
To register, contact our summer camp coordinator.
Honeywell Summer Science Week
July 11-15 and July 20 for students who completed eighth grade
Students spend each day out in the field conducting real scientific research as they learn about the stressors on the Onondaga Lake watershed. They also learn what Honeywell is doing to clean up the lake, which was once considered the most polluted lake in the country.
The camp is FREE but students must apply to be considered. THERE ARE ONLY 10 SPOTS LEFT!!! For more information, contact the chief program officer.
Campers and their parents who couldn’t make Thursday’s orientation session can download a PDF copy of the PowerPoint presentation, which has essential information for the camp.
