Camps 2020

The MOST will offer (3) camps for different age groups weekly throughout the summer. To register for a camp, choose the session week you would like your child to attend, then choose your camper’s age range from the three available options: Junior Scientist (Ages 4-7), Be the Scientist (Ages 8-11), or Engineer Academy (Ages 12-15).  

All MOST camps are designed to be inclusive and accessible to all types of learners. Personal aides may attend camp with your camper at no additional charge. 

All MOST Summer Camps will be conducted with the following health and safety procedures in place: 

  • Regular cleaning and disinfecting of camp spaces, classrooms, and exhibits 
  • Frequent hand-washing breaks and distanced work stations 
  • Small class sizes (up to 10 campers) for health safety and stronger engagement 
  • All counselors and staff will wear masks 
  • Campers must bring masks and will be encouraged to wear them when not outdoors, at mealtime, etc.
  • Thermal temperature check for all campers and staff upon check-in each day 
  • Separate camp entrances for each camp group to ensure public health and social distancing at drop-off and pick-up (Camp Door, Main Front Door, Bus Loop Loading Door)
