Museum Youth Camps 2020
 

Join us for camp at the MAC

The MAC's camps are based on the philosophy that young people benefit from hands-on learning experiences that combine an appreciation for the arts and science with respect for and understanding of the world around them. It is the mission of our dedicated and experienced staff to promote creative talent, cultivate a sense of wonder, and foster an enthusiasm for exploration of the natural world.

Virtual Camps 

Summer camps will be offered from July through September 2020 and include one-day and week-long camps for grades 2-5. One-day fall and winter camps will run in October and during winter break. Due to the COVID19 pandemic and our concern for the health and safety of campers and staff, we will be delivering our camps in a digital format this year. We'll provide age-appropriate instructions and materials for activities your camper(s) can do at home. Each activity will include some exploration of the materials and will result in a finished piece. There will be options provided for extending the projects and challenges for campers to go even further with their creativity. The length of time each activity takes will vary from camper to camper.

Museum Virtual Camp Kits will include links to our instructional videos, printed instructions and project materials.
