Camp FAQs

Campers will spend their time in the classroom, in the museum and outside in some instances for their camp. They will fill their day learning about the topic at hand through hands-on demonstrations, experiments and crafts. Children will have free time to explore the museum exhibits and will be able to attend at least one science show, animal show or planetarium show.

K – 5th grade campers will go outside for a 30minute supervised recess to release energy, or to perform certain science experiments but will remain indoors the majority of the day. 

For Kindergarten Camps, there will be one teacher for every 12 students, with up to 3 Teen Interns assisting the classroom. For all other camps, there will be one teacher for every 15 students, with up to 2 Teen Interns assisting in the classroom.

Kindergarten Camp classes have a maximum of 12 students. All other Camp classes have maximum of 15 students.

MOSH offers early morning and late afternoon child care to accommodate working parents. During extended day sessions, campers have free play during which they can play games, draw and color or watch a movie.

MOSH does not serve snacks. Parents are responsible for supplying a mid-morning snack.

Parents are welcome to pick up their children for lunch. We do ask that if parents want to eat with their child they go out to the park or off the premises to eat. We also ask that parents let MOSH staff know in the morning if they would like to have lunch with their child that day.

Although there are no current plans for field trips during Winter Camp 2021, MOSH’s Education Department will notify guardians of any planned trips that become available and distribute permission slips. 

Campers are not recommended to bring personal electronic devices to camp. However, campers enrolled in extended day may bring personal items, including electronics, as long as it does not cause problems. Campers may not play with personal items in the camp classrooms. If personal items become a distraction, they may be taken away and will be returned to the parent at the end of the day. Please be aware that MOSH will not be held responsible for lost, broken or stolen personal items. The child is solely responsible for all personal items, including money that is brought to camp.
