Camps

The safety and well-being of our camp community is always our top priority at THEMUSEUM.

This summer, campers ages 9-14 will have the opportunity to enjoy in-person summer camp in The Underground Studio MakerSpace.  Capacity will be limited to ensure safety & social-distancing measures.

Let your children learn and have fun during our at-home virtual Summer STEAM Workshops.  They are great projects for families to enjoy once a week throughout the summer! 

Changes to our camps are necessary for this summer. We’re excited to keep you engaged and entertained during these unprecedented times.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding!


Ages 9 – 14

THEMUSEUM’s Underground Studio MakerSpace opened in 2016 as a place for people of all ages to explore making, tinkering and hands-on learning. The Underground Studio MakerSpace camps are designed to challenge and develop the skill sets of our older campers giving them a chance to learn and experiment with a variety of topics.
