MOSH provides a variety of camps for elementary school aged children as well. Different Discovery Camps are offered at the Museum of Science and History during the spring, summer, and winter. Discovery Camps provide learning experiences both in a classroom and out in the museum, as well as outside depending on the camp program. Children will have their day filled with experiments, crafts, and hands-on demonstration all designed to help them learn about a specific topic. These camps include free time for children to explore the various exhibits throughout the museum, as well as at least one animal show, planetarium show, or science show. The Space Week camp also consists of off-site field trips. In addition to the week-long Discovery Camps, Mosh also offers One Day Fun Day Camps. Children from kindergarten to fifth grade can spend a day taking part in fun educational activities, watching science and planetarium shows, and exploring the museum.
There are also a variety of scout workshops for both boy scouts and girl scouts at the Museum of Science and History. The Scout Workshops provide a chance for scouts to earn their badges through the many different badge programs. Each workshop also includes time for participants to explore MOSH. Scout troops can also choose to book a Scout Camp-In at the museum, during which they can sleep under Fermata, the museum's life-sized whale. Camp-Ins usually include time to explore the museum's exhibits, a movie, late night snacks, and either a science, animal, or planetarium show. Camp-Ins are also available to other groups.
