Camps

Day Camps are a long-standing children’s program at THEMUSEUM. Since 2008, our campers have had a fantastic time at THEMUSEUM! We aim to awe, inspire and enlighten through our engaging educational camp programs in person.

Currently, we offer two main camp streams, our Day Camps (ages 5– 12) and The Underground Studio MakerSpace Camps (ages 9 – 14) for Winter Break, March Break, PD Days and Summer Break.

Join us for a day of exploration, creativity and fun! Learn about a variety of exciting topics guaranteed to ignite curiosity.
