K-5th Camps

Our camps are led by experienced Museum educators. Our team approach implements creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication into each day’s lesson plan. From encounters with wildlife to exploring cultural heritage, your child will have an enriching camp experience at the Museum. Camps are offered to children in Kindergarten- 5th grade.
