Summer 2022 Mini-Camps

Register for a dose of late summer fun and enrichment for your school age children! 

Mini-Camps for ages 6–10

2022 mini-camps for kids ages 6-10 are designed by our education experts to be a half-day dive into brain-building topics with hands-on exploration. Each camp is a half-day and kids can register for AM or PM sessions or both for a full-day experience. 

Friday, August 5

Garden Club

Discover the fun of gardening and composting on the museum’s green rooftop and in the Wonderground. We will use things growing in the gardens to make some food, botanical soap, fairy houses, and have some time for free play in the museum. 

Miniature Worlds: Campout

Craft your own miniature camping scene including a tiny wooden camper van and a ton of realistic accessories. This camp will provide a kit with all the parts to make this fun project in an afternoon!

Mini-Camp for ages 4–5: Camp Kindergarten

Wednesday–Friday, August 10-12, 9–11 am each day

Back by popular demand! Join us for three special days of play and activities designed for children entering Kindergarten in the fall. 

Camp Kindergarten

We’ll run like a gerbil, create like an artist, and think like a scientist; each day will include supervised free play time in the museum, and a special craft or science activity. Making new friends and playing together will help campers practice important Kindergarten skills like turn-taking and standing in line, and will encourage kindness and confidence. 

Best for children who have completed 4K or with previous classroom experience.

  • $60/child (for 3-day session)
