2017 Day Camps

Spring & Summer Day Camp

The Children’s Museum offers fun-filled Day Camps that get kids’ minds and bodies moving during spring and summer breaks. Our Day Camps are a great, safe place for kids to spend their holidays.

Museum campers will create, discover, learn, and meet new friends as they explore exciting themes related to our galleries. Grouped with others of a similar age, campers will enjoy stimulating, age-appropriate activities. With indoor and outdoor activities, games, crafts, time in the galleries, special guests, and a field trip (in summer camps), your children are sure to have a memorable week full of adventure!
