Covering everything science from astronomy to zoology, little ones can take advantage of all the resources the American Museum of Natural History has to offer at this educational camp. They go on interactive tours of museum exhibits, then apply their new knowledge to classroom projects. Kids gaze at constellations in the Hayden Planetarium, identify gigantic fossilized bones in the David H. Koch Dinosaur Wing, examine butterflies in an indoor tropical rainforest and study extreme weather in the exhibit “Nature’s Fury: The Science of Storms.” Ages 5–13.
