POWERED BY STEAM. FUELED BY FUN!
New Experiences, New Activities, New Friends!
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 encouraged to experience “out of the box” concepts in a safe and nurturing, hands-on environment.
Ages: 6 – 10
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)
10 spots per session (minimum of 8 participants required. If the minimum is not met by the registration deadline, the session will be canceled, and your registration will be refunded.)
Camper brings: Lunch
CMA provides: Afternoon snacks and unlimited water
S.T.E.A.M. learning gives your children a productive and fun way to enjoy summer while still furthering their education. 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 S.T.E.A.M. subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) through fun and exciting experiences for your child every day! Each of the five weeks offers a mixture of activities so campers can dive into fun new activities every day. Daily schedules incorporate time for independent exploration and discovery. Camp CMA also ventures 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!
Please read the following boxes carefully before purchasing, as each box contains essential information.
