Camps with CMCO

IMAGINE. EXPLORE. CREATE.

CMCO's camps are focused around hands-on exploration. Every single camp incorporates art and science and strives to build confidence in our kiddos to experiment and live creatively.

 

Art camps focus on understanding materials, the science of mixing, experimentation through the scientific method, and observation. Our science camps emphasize making and building skills, the design process, trial and error, and working to build complex conceptual thinking skills. 

We look forward to creating with you!
