Camp STEAMOLOGY

POWERED BY STEAM.  FUELED BY FUN! Children’s Museum of Acadiana’s  S.T.E.A.M.O.L.O.G.Y.  Summer Camp program inspires learning through creating, experimenting, exploring, and making new friends. Children experience the deepest, most genuine learning when they are allowed to be creative and are inspired to experience “out of the box” concepts in a safe and nurturing environment.

  • Ages: 6 – 11

  • Monday – Friday 9 am to 4 pm (Early drop off starting at 8:30 am) (After-camp care until 5:30 pm at $12 per day; advanced notice required)

  • Coed Camp

  • 15 spots per session ((minimum of 8 participants required. If the minimum not met by the registration deadline, the session will be canceled and your registration will be refunded.)

  • Camper brings: Lunch, Refillable Water Bottle 

  • CMA provides: Afternoon snack and unlimited water 

S.T.E.A.M. Learning gives your children a productive and fun way to enjoy summer while still learning… SIX WEEKS of a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole lot of fun!

The founding principle of the CMA is that children “Learn by doing”. CMA’s summer camp curriculum teaches STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) through fun and exciting experiences for your child every day!  Each of the six weeks offers a mixture of activities so campers will have the chance to dive into fun new activities every day. Daily schedules incorporate time for independent exploration and discovery. Camp CMA will venture outdoors as often as possible not only for fresh air but for a chance to get a little messy with art and science and Harmony Park fun. The majority of our typical camp programming will be done as usual with increased sanitation and proper precautions.  Activities will take place outside wherever and whenever possible.
