Using this Web Site
The Museum's Summer Camp is divided by grade level, starting from Pre-Kindergarten through Teen Camp (Grades 6-8.) The class listings within each grade are alphabetical. Next to each class title is a two-letter code for registration purposes. Also on this line is a number(s) corresponding to the session(s) the class is offered and whether it is a morning (AM), afternoon (PM) or all-day (AD) class.

Summer Camp Satellite Sites
The Miami Museum of Science will conduct some upper grade level classes at satellite sites to accommodate our growing numbers. Pre-K through Grade 3 programs are held at the Museum unless otherwise noted. Many full-day programs for Grades 4 through 8 are held off-site at Southside Elementary School and water-related sites. Transportation is provided to and from these sites and for all excursions. Exhibit gallery time is scheduled for off-site campers. Southside Elementary school is located at 45 SW 13th Street, two blocks west of Brickell Avenue and just a five-minute bus ride from the Museum.

All-day classes have a lunch break, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. Catered bagged lunches are available and will be delivered to your child's classroom each morning. Select a full week of lunches from a variety of sandwich choices listed under Step 6. If preparing lunches at home, please send food that does not require refrigeration, and put camper's name on lunch bag or box, as well as all other belongings.

Sandwich, snack and beverage vending machines are also available in the Museum, and a mobile hot dog vendor is at the Museum daily. Each Friday campers may order a slice of Papa John's pizza for $1 for their lunch! Pizza proceeds benefit the Museum's Upward Bound Math and Science Program.

Campers attending classes at Southside Elementary or participating in water-related classes can order the bagged lunches or bring their lunches as these sites do not have food services.

Supervised lunch is only for campers staying all day. Please pick up your camper promptly at 11:45 a.m. if they are not scheduled for an afternoon class.

Rainy Days
In the event of rainy weather, students enrolled in outdoor classes at all sites will be engaged in indoor activities appropriate to the class content. We cannot give tuition refunds due to weather.

4th of July
Camp will be held on Independence Day, Thursday, July 4th. We'll add a little celebration to all of our classes. Don't forget to wear your red, white and blue!

Cancelled Classes, Class Changes & Withdrawals
We don't like to cancel any classes; however, because each class is self-supporting, we must establish a minimum enrollment and cancel those classes that do not meet this minimum. If we must cancel your class, either your payment will be returned, or you will be enrolled in your second choice, space permitting.

If a student withdraws before class begins, a Museum credit (but no refund) will be given, minus a $10 processing fee per class. This credit is good for one year from date of issue and may be applied to Holiday Break, Spring Break or Summer Camp classes. If any billing adjustments are necessary, please submit your request in writing before August 31, 2003. In case of rain, campers will participate in appropriate indoor-related, hands-on activities. Changing classes is permitted, if space allows; however, there is a $10 processing fee for each class change.


  1. All fees must be paid at time of registration via credit card (if online).
  2. Sibling Discount will be calculated after your online registration has been verified by staff. After the highest tuition child is determined, 20% will be deducted from the tuition of the second, third, fourth (and so on!) child that you enroll from your household. PLEASE NOTE: Discount applies to tuition portion only, not to pre- and post-camp activities, transportation or T-shirts. Cousins, nieces, nephews or friends are ineligible.
  3. Credit cards-American Express, Visa or Mastercard-are accepted. Cash accepted for in-person registration only.


Signing up online over the weekend for Monday morning? We cannot guarantee space after 12 noon Friday for classes beginning the following Monday.
