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- 8th grade. Please register your child in the camp of their recently completed grade level.
Online registration will close at 12 p.m. on the Friday prior to each camp. You may download, and bring in a registration form on the day of camp, but please know this does not guarantee you a spot. Registration is on a first come, first served basis. Early registration is recommended.
We understand that changes arise in scheduling and therefore allow for one change in date and time no less than 2 weeks prior to the camp date. A $25 administrative fee for program date/time change is applied to any change made in addition to the allowed change, or one that is less than 2 weeks prior.
