Museum staff, visiting artists, and other special guests such as scientists and historical characters will take campers to the moon and back through a series of fun and creative hands on activities including games, experiments, crafts, storytelling, and a field trip. Campers will explore man’s desire for flight by learning about lofty topics like da Vinci’s flying machine invention, kites, hot air balloons, the Wright Brothers, and Amelia Earhart. Next, they will soar into space to imagine what it was like when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon fifty years ago. After “one small step for  man and one giant leap for mankind,” campers will land back on planet Earth in the year 1969 to enjoy pop culture of the period including toys, music and fashion.
