What You Can Expect at Camp Curious
This summer, kids pre-K through ninth grade can use the Museum as a virtual learning lab, right from their home, to explore the wonders of science, history, culture and more through a variety of camp offerings. Virtual Camp Curious is set to begin on Monday, June 15.
The GRPM offers options for one-day or three-day camps with a variety of themes, including Slimy Science, Fossil Hunters and Dream it, Build it LEGO® Bricks, Young Wizards Academy and more. These virtual programs allow campers to explore and investigate through hands-on experiments and activities, while using common items in their homes as well as artifacts and specimens in the GRPM’s Collections.
Camp Curious Session Details
Camp participation will require access to the internet and the use of a device to watch presentations and receive daily instructions. The Camp Curious program will utilize the virtual platform SeeSaw, featuring a live kick-off and wrap up with instructors each day of camp via Zoom. Most activities will take place off-line. Screen time is dedicated for directions and questions for the instructors, with the primary focus of the program being on the hands-on activities. Recordings of each live session will be posted to the SeeSaw classroom following the stream, to allow flexibility for campers to learn at their own pace.
Camp Curious sessions are designed for campers to do projects independently; the Museum recommends that parents of young children (pre-K – 3rd grade) be present. Camp supplies include common items from around your home, and can be interchangeable based on what campers have access to. Recommended lists can be found at grpm.org/CampCurious.
