Camp Curiosity

kids in a camp session

Camp Curiosity is a science camp designed to foster community. Science relies on community and collaboration, so our camps encourage both. We blend fun, hands-on science experiences and recreation centered around team building and communication. Camp Curiosity maximizes the beautiful campus at Montessori Community School and the freedom of having the grounds to ourselves.

Our entire camp will meet every day to share in songs, laugh together at skits, and share the stories and knowledge campers have gained during our Curiosity Circle. These gatherings are opportunities to meet other campers, explore play options around campus, and get out some energy! In addition, every morning, your camper will choose from several activities, ranging from field games to facilitated science and engineering-based activities with our staff. 

Campers will gather in Montessori Community School’s classrooms throughout the day to engage with the themes and curriculum developed by the Museum team. We aim to create meaningful and memorable experiences that show campers the power of science as a lens through which to view the world. Our activities and experiences are hands-on, fun, and engaging.
