Although summer has not yet arrived, summer camp season has already begun. There are a number of summer camp opportunities for children of all ages including those at the Museum of Arts & Sciences (MOAS) in Daytona Beach, Florida which started its 2016 Summer Learning Institute this week. The museum is offering opportunities for children, ages four through 13 years old, and there will be a lot of learning and fun happening this summer.

Children, ages seven to nine years old, will dig for bones and learn how paleontologists excavate fossil sites studying Dragons from Deep Time; have 120,000 LEGOs at their disposal as Master Builders while they create and step into the Time Tunnel and learn about mummies, ancient temples and inventions that changed the world.
