About Us

Some Museum Summer Camps still open for 2011

We have an exciting array of classes planned for this summer! Join Museum educators for fun and learning in the natural sciences.

Your child(ren) should be signed up according to their current grade / minimum age. If your child is in Kindergarten this (2010-2011) school year, they should be signed up for the PreK-K classes, not the 1st-2nd grade classes.   We cannot make exceptions, and registration forms that are for incorrect age groups will be returned.

For more information and to register, please visit our Summer Camp Frequently Asked Questions page.

The Museum can grant refunds only when a cancellation is received  before MAY 31, 2011.  Cancellations received after MAY 31, 2011 will not be eligible for a refund. A $25 processing fee is required for refunds.

The Museum offers a limited number of partial scholarships for camp.
