Fall Break Camp - October 7 & 8

Thursday (10/7) and Friday (10/8)

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History is pleased to offer single-day themed camps for the Fall Break, Election Day, Veterans Day, Winter Break, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, and Spring Break school holidays. Fall Break Day camp is geared to campers in grades K-6th, and for a maximum of 15 campers.

Our education team has divided camp topics into single day camps that are multi-age collaborative camper experiences from 8:30 am- 3:30 pm, with FREE before- and after-care starting at 7:30 am and ending at 5:30 pm. Each in person camp will maintain CDC and state safety protocols (where applicable). All campers and staff must wear face masks unless otherwise noted prior to camp. Enrollment is limited to 15 children per day for Fall Break day camps for grades Kindergarten through 6th grade.
