Summer camp needn't be just a good childhood memory. Return to the world of campfire songs, tie-dye shirts and team games this summer at the RMSC! Camp After Dark is all the fun of summer camp—but just for adults. Pack your curiosity and head to the RMSC to:

  • Get in the camping spirit with L.L. Bean demos
  • Compete with other After Dark campers in a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament
  • Challenge a friend to a fencing match and meet Iris Zimmerman, U.S. Women’s Foil Team Olympian in 2000 and current co-owner of Rochester Fencing Club
  • Play pick-up games of volleyball on the lawn
  • Craft camp memories as you make your own glow-in-the-dark boondoggle
  • Sway along to the acoustic melodies of guitarist Alphonso Williams
  • Tie-dye your own camp shirt (must be a VIP guest or purchase a t-shirt from a limited supply at the event)
  • Climb to the Strasenburgh Planetarium roof to stargaze and check out Rochester's sky through telescopes with the Astronomy Section of the Rochester Academy of Science
  • Take on a paper airplane challenge and try string painting with Rochester Maker Faire
  • Sample the spirits of TommyRotter Distillery
  • Explore shows and activities in the Science Museum and across the outdoor campus
