summer camp banner 2020

Our week-long summer camps for ages 5–12 incorporate hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) concepts in a fun environment designed for campers to build, explore, and create.

Our weekly, half-day summer camp sessions take place Mondays through Fridays in July from 9am–12pm or 1pm–4pm. Each session explores a different theme and all materials and supplies to complete each project are provided. To ensure a quality experience, each camp is limited to 18 participants.


Tuition is $135 per child, per session. Museum Members receive a 10% discount on tuition.

Advance registration is required for this program. Please see 'Important Information' at the bottom of this page prior to registering for information on our COVID policies & procedures, refunds, financial aid, and more.
