Bradenton, Florida -- The South Florida Museum is pleased to announce the Science Explorers Camp schedule for summer 2011. The interactive programs cover an array of topics from ants to outer space as part of themed five-day summer camp programs designed for children entering grades 2-5. The six different sessions will begin June 13 and run through July 29, 2011.

Designed and led by award-winning local teacher Sarah Hammock, the programs are fun, engaging and educational. The Museum’s programs offer quality, hands-on, fun and purposeful science and historical instruction that will provide campers an edge when they return to their traditional classrooms in the fall. All camps adhere to the Florida Department of Education Science and Social Studies "Big Ideas" standards.

“The South Florida Museum is uniquely positioned to present these dynamic programs allowing kids to have fun in a truly educational environment,” said Hammock. “Being a facility rooted in the cultural and natural history of Florida’s gulf coast plus a focus on exploration of the universe, we are able to cover a diverse selection of programs—everything from space, carnivores, wildlife awareness and shells. Participating families are also delighted to learn about the convenience of our all-day schedule.”

Campers are offered a full day of fun starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m. Each session costs $225/camper for the general public and $180/camper for Members of the Museum Friends program. Reservations are required and space is limited.
