Messy Masters I: Children will experience the unique artwork of Jackson Polluck, Georges Seurat, Michelangelo & more, and then we'll experiment with each style by painting with marbles, dots and even upside down!
May 27-30 (FOUR DAY)
Jr. Camp Pirates & Princesses I: Join us for one of our most popular camps where children explore the wonderful world of dress up and imagination!

Star Wars I: Music, costumes, movies and more! We'll make light sabers, storm troopers and our own millennium falcon ship. Costumes encouraged! On the last day, we'll ask you to dress up as your favorite Star Wars character for some fun theatrics and photo ops!
Iron Chefs: Community Partners will teach us about the nutritional value of food to make healthy choices for a healthy lifestyle. We'll use our very own garden here at the Museum to make some yummy treats and healthy snacks. We'll even share the recipes!
*Iron Chefs Camp is peanut-free. CML cannot change the recipes or program for Iron Chefs based upon individual food allergies or preferences. If you are concerned about your child's participation in this program, please call Kendra McCabe, Camp Director, at 843.853.8962.
Jr. Camp Tiny Tinkers / Sr. Camp Mighty Makers: It's all about engineering and tinkering at this camp! We'll reuse materials to make fun, new contraptions. Campers will use real tools such as hammers and screwdrivers (with adult supervision) to build and take apart equipment to learn how it works.
Super Heroes: Come explore the world of Batman, Wonder Woman, Spiderman and more! From capes to shields, we'll make everything your littles ones need for super human powers. Costumes optional but strongly encouraged!
June 30-July 3 (FOUR DAYS)

Older campers will use the scientific method to explore physics, chemistry, biology and geology during this intense week-long science lab!

Sr. Camp Harry Potter II: This second week of Harry Potter will expand on the first, but the first is not a prerequisite for this camp. All campers will attend classes in transfiguration, potions, charms and herbology.
Messy Masters II: Children will experience the unique artwork of Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Georgia O'Keeffe and Vincent van Gogh, and then go on to create their own interpretations of each artist's style.
The Big Adventure: We've got a new exhibit and a new camp to go along with it! We'll have all kinds of adventures during this camp. We'll explore other countries, but first we have to get there... do we climb over the mountain, cross a river or maybe fly a plane? Bring your sense of adventure and curiosity to this camp!
July 28-August 1
Star Wars II: This second week of Star Wars will be different from the first, so your little one can come to both weeks for two fun-filled camps of Star Wars adventures!
Campy Camp: It's all about the great outdoors and pretend play at this camp! We're turning our classroom into a forest and setting up camp. We'll build tents and make s'mores with solar power. Be on the lookout for cool creatures!
Theatrics: Campers will take center stage as children's stories come to life with dramatic games, costumes, sound effects and more! Older campers will use various children's literature and poetry to experience the art of face painting, puppet creation and script writing, as well as music selection and costume design.
