Children Explore Interests at CSM Summer Camps
Programs for Budding Writers, Scientists, Artists, Detectives
In the carefree days of summer, kids and teens attending College of Southern Maryland camps will be exploring their interests in writing poetry, building Lego robots, engineering and building bridges, zoology and entomology, computer illustration and art—while having fun and making new friends.
“In stringent and structured classrooms, teachers don’t always have the luxury of offering topics that are outside of their curriculum and students don’t always have opportunities to linger on subjects that interest them. That’s why summer vacation is so important,” said CSM Youth Program Coordinator John Terlesky. “We try to design our summer programs so that there will be something for everyone, whether the student is interested in space, animals, computers or art, the subjects can be explored at the student’s pace.”
Kids’ and Teen College camps run June 18 through Aug. 16 at CSM’s La Plata, Leonardtown and Prince Frederick campuses. Classes are full days 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or half days from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1 to 4:30 p.m. Kids’ College programs are for children ages 5-10 years old; Teen College programs are for 11- to 17-year-olds. Programs include arts and crafts, music and theater, engineering and information technology, languages and literature, math and game strategies, sports and athletics, and science.

EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITY OFFERED FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS
Summer Environmental Institute on July 30 – August 3
Is your middle school student interested in science, being outdoors, learning by doing, and experimenting? The Calvert Marine Museum is offering the perfect program: the Summer Environmental Institute. This is a very serious name for a fun, hands-on camp experience that will give kids a chance to get out on the water, into the marsh, behind the scenes at the museum, and into science labs at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL). Camp is July 20 – August 3 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and participants pay only $50. Visit the website at http://www.calvertmarinemuseum.com/education/education-youth-summer-camps.php or call 410-326-2042 ext. 41 to register.
The kids will have an opportunity to talk with CBL scientists who have collected base data on the Patuxent River and Chesapeake Bay for over 30 years. They will learn to interpret the information, review the trends, and learn to do water sampling and analysis to see how results compare. They will explore how natural events, such as Tropical Storm Lee, can have an enormous impact on the Chesapeake Bay – and how that impact affects the environment. They will map a section of shoreline from the museum’s historic bugeye, William B. Tennison. They will see the impacts of erosion, visit a shoreline restoration project at Cove Point, and a living shoreline in Solomons as part of an exploration for solutions.
This summer camp experience is sponsored by the Calvert Marine Museum and Chesapeake Biological Laboratory with the support of a grant funded by the Cove Point Natural Heritage Trust. This partnership and combination of resources will bring environmental science to life for an unforgettable experience!
