Museum Youth Camps


The MAC’s camps are based on the concept that young people benefit from hands-on learning experiences. Camp activities stimulate creativity, refine artistic skill, and inspire wonder for the natural world through scientific exploration. Each camp includes a tour of the museum with one of our educators.
