As of 6.29.17, the State of Connecticut has not passed a budget. Due to the uncertainty of funding, Cosmic Cultures summer camp will not be held this year.
A little about us...
Cosmic Cultures II is an interdistrict grant program that brings together students from Wolcott, Meriden, Ansonia, and Hartford. The program is designed to provide meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for students that enhance and enrich their school day learning. Learning experiences focus on the cultural and scientific links of both ancient and present day civilizations using astronomy as its central unifying theme. Further, it provides numerous opportunities for students from different communities and backgrounds to meet, become friends, and establish meaningful, positive relationships. Team building and task-oriented activities allow students to develop inter-personal, communication, and problem solving skills in a fun, relaxed and engaging atmosphere.
