Curiosity Campout: End-of-Summer Celebration

Curiosity Campout: End-of-Summer Celebration

Friday, September 2 | 4:30-6:30pm

Join us for our next Curiosity Campout as we celebrate the end of summer and the start of another school year! This pre-registered family program is built for campers and caregivers together. You'll check in, grab your supplies and instructions, and then find some space on the lawn to make yourself at home!

We have a night full of celebratory STEM and hands-on family fun planned for you and your family! Some activities include:

  • Launching film canister rockets with a chemical reaction
  • Designing environmentally friendly confetti from foliage, and dissecting your work under a microscope
  • Engineering instruments, art, and party entertainment
  • And more!

Activities will be designed for Curiosity Campers ages 5-11, but Campers of all ages are welcome! We’ll provide instructions for how to make the evening’s projects more complex, and materials will be open-ended enough to provide endless possibilities for younger explorers.


Cost: $15 per person

Important Information

When planning to attend this event, please keep in mind:

  • Availability limited due to space restrictions and registration is required. Registration includes kit materials, written instructions, and hands-on facilitation from Curiosity Camps staff throughout the night.
  • Curiosity Campout will take place outside on the RMSC Rochester campus (657 East Avenue, Rochester, NY 14607).
  • This is an outdoor event! Be prepared to find your own space on the lawn outside the museum. This will serve as your homebase as you build, test, and experiment! We recommend bringing a blanket or two. Or hey—it’s a campout; bring a tent!
  • We also recommend wearing clothes and closed-toed shoes that can get dirty and bringing a jacket and water bottle for each participant.
  • All Curiosity Campout participants will be required to adhere to the museum’s COVID-19 policies and procedures.
