Camps and Programs

So many ways to start discovering the scientist in all of us

Spring Break Camp

Head to Toe
Join us for a week of Museum fun! Each day we’ll visit Museum exhibits, explore the outdoors, and use art projects, games, and experiments to dive into our topic for the week: the science of YOU! We’ll investigate the marvelous natural machinery of the human body. We’ll explore the architecture of our skeleton, the mechanics of our heart and lungs, the circuitry of our brains, and the chemical powerhouse of our digestive system! With our new-found knowledge, we will even imagine and build our own entirely new organism!

March 29 – April 2, 2021 from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

General Public: $325
Before Camp Care (8:00am – 9:00am): $20

Summer Camps

Our camps are designed by our year-round staff to balance the excitement of first discovery and the satisfaction of lasting learning. Campers explore nature, animal life, creativity, problem-solving, and scientific thinking while making new friends and having fun at the Museum.

Museum Schoolhouse

We offer weekday classes for families with elementary and middle school students. These classes foster curiosity in the world around us and the use of science as a tool for exploring that world. Our experienced educators use the Museum’s 84-acres of indoor and outdoor learning environments as a platform for inquiry-based and project-oriented activities.

Designed for K-8th grade students enrolled in a remote learning program through their school, Museum Clubhouse provides in-person support with schoolwork, outdoor explorations, and grade-appropriate science activities. Join us two, three, or four days a week.
