Camps at Madison Children’s Museum


Sign up for some serious school-age fun!

Kids have lots of interests, so our spring, summer, and winter camps have lots to offer—from art and fashion to cooking and technology.

Summer Camp online registration is now open!

For registration questions, or to be added to the waiting list for a sold-out camp session, please contact Kelley at 608.256.6445 ext. 156 or by email.

Morning camps run 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; Afternoon camps run 1 – 5 p.m. Campers are asked to bring a lunch to morning camps and a snack to afternoon camps.

Fees and Payment

Standard camp fees are $117 per session for museum members and $130 per session for nonmembers. Higher rates apply to the Day and Night at the Museum overnight camp, and the two-week Musical Theater camp sessions (open individual camp descriptions for fee information).

For information about program cancellation, withdrawal, and refunds, please see our cancellation policy.

Scholarships are available through the museum’s Access Membership program.
