    Spend the summer at Camp Newark Museum, an innovative six-week experience that brings 80 world-class art and science galleries to life. Hands-on workshops and experiments in STEAM — science, technology, engineering, arts and math — ignite young minds and fuel contagious curiosity. Camp runs Monday through Friday, 9 am-4 pm, with an extended day option. All children ages 3-13 are welcome.

    Campers work in diverse groups to envision, prototype, design, test and execute unique creations using 21st century skills such as critical-thinking, creativity and collaboration. Through the development of a marketing strategy for their designs, campers will cultivate language art skills and new vocabulary.

    The 2014 weekly themes are as follows:

    • Week One: July 7-11 — Exploration

    • Week Two: July 14-18 — Mythbusters

    • Week Three: July 21-25 — Rewind/Fast forward
