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.
For registration questions, or to be added to the waiting list for a sold-out camp session, please contact the registrar, or call 608.256.6445 ext. 156.
Morning camps run 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.; Afternoon camps run 1 – 5 p.m.; mini-camps may be scheduled at other times. Campers are asked to bring a lunch to morning camps and a snack to afternoon camps.
