About Camp Care
Held on Fridays, SSC Camp Care explores a different topic in natural sciences each week while integrating math, engineering, reading, writing, art and music, to add richness and age-appropriate academic rigor to the science content. Most activities will take place outdoors in the fields, forest, and tide pools of Odiorne Point State Park.
While a portion of the day will be dedicated to lessons in environmental education, featuring nature’s remarkable classroom just outside the doors of Seacoast Science Center, children will also have time available for school work, park exploration, and outdoor games. We will make every effort to accommodate your child’s online school meeting needs if requested.
Children will be grouped by grade: K-1-2 and 3-4-5, with a maximum of 12 students in each group.
After-care is available daily from 3:00-5:30 pm at a cost of $20 a child per day.
