Museum Youth Camps


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.
