The museum will be implementing a Camper Code of Conduct for the summer of 2017. Parents and guardians will receive a copy of the camper code of conduct to review with their camper a week before their child’s camp begins.


One more camp has been added to the last week of summer!

The Toy Factory:  August 7-11  (ages 8-10)

Everyone has a favorite toy, but what makes it really awesome?  Fuzz, fluff, movement, lights or sound?  Campers will design, build and test toys in search of the “best toy ever.”   Once found, campers will design an advertising campaign to sell their favorite toy. Register today!


Due to the prevalence and severity of allergies among our campers, the Museum is implementing a strict "NO NUTS" policy. With every camper's utmost safety in mind, it is now a requirement that campers may not bring any nut products (tree nuts or peanuts) in their lunches, and all planned activities throughout every camp session will not include nuts.
