At Home Virtual Camps (June 22 – 26)

The South Carolina State Museum in Columbia is excited to introduce At-Home Virtual Summer Camps this June for ages 6 – 11, sponsored by AFLAC! These week-long camps will focus on a different theme each day, including natural history, astronomy, robotics, art, S.T.E.A.M and more. Our goal is to provide an at home camp experience that is not only educational and keeps your children entertained for a few hours, but also provides campers a safe place to express their emotions and feelings during this very strange time. We won’t just be staring at a screen all day either! We asked our campers and they said they want to dance, wiggle, and move – so we’ll be doing that every day!

Then create a model that explains why the image of the black hole at the center of the galaxy M87 looks like a cosmic doughnut. Robotics and Technology – Dash and Dot – bots! Tues., June 23 Dash is back but this time with his little buddy Dot! Learn how to kinetically code and how to get these two best buddies to play hide and seek. We’ll then explore Dash and Dot a little more and teach Dash how to play music on his Xylophone. Natural History – It’s a Hoot! Wed., June 24 Learn about owls and their place in the ecosystem. Make your own owl puppet. STEAM Day – Engineering and the Science of Light Thurs., June 25 We’ll work on our Civil Engineering skills as we build a structure to keep 3 little pigs safe from the elements. Then we’ll take a look at the science of light as we create our own kaleidoscopes and a way to sneakily peak around corners without getting caught! History – Ancient Activities Fri., June 26 Design and create an ancient death mask and a Roman-inspired mosaic. __________________________________ Camp Pricing Non-member: $100 per household.

Each day is split into two sessions: 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Each camp week comes with a kit of supplies for the daily activities. Kits will include enough materials for one camper – but can be shared with other campers in the household. Additional kits are available for an add-on fee. Kits will be available for pick-up at the museum on the Friday before the camps week starts from 6 – 7 p.m. Camp activities are designed with parents in mind. Activities are intended to be completed with virtual assistance from museum educators and require little parental oversight. Activities are hands-on and mostly mess-free. _____________________________________ What Does Camp Registration Include?
