“My 6 year old son attended THEMUSEUM summer camp program for the first time this year. As a mother of two I have tried about every camp in the Region at least once over the years. The level of professionalism and organization received from the staff at the camp far exceeded my experience with many other much more costly programs. On the second day my son was greeted by first name by several staff and on the car ride home each night I received a lesson on the interesting facts and history they learned throughout the day. He came home excited about his time there and could not wait to go back each morning. I am disappointed I only signed up for one week this summer, we will definitely be back for several sessions next year!” 

– Julie Garasto, parent of a camper.
