Please Note:

  • Each camp is designed to capture the attention and interest of your child and is targeted for the grade they will enter this fall.
  • NHMU Summer Camps run in week-long, half-day, or full-day formats (we are not offering camp the week of July 2-6 due to the July 4 holiday and we have one 3-day week due to July 24 holiday).
  • Not all School Districts begin or end summer break at the same time--check your school schedule before registering.
  • Camp sessions vary in price, depending on grade, length of day, and duration of week. Check individual listings.
  • Partner Camps for children entering 2nd–3rd grades begin at our partner locations and end at the Museum; Partner Camps for children entering 4th–5th grades begin at the Museum and end at the partner location, unless otherwise noted. Check individual camp listings for more information.
  • Depending on your membership level, additional discounts will apply. Learn More About Museum Membership.
  • Campers enrolled in full day sessions bring their own non-refrigerated lunch from home along with a drink. We offer a supervised lunch hour that includes time to explore outside.
  • Campers will receive a reusable water bottle and a camp shirt with their camp registration fee. 
  • Visit our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website or feel free to contact the Camp Director, Shelli Campbell, at  .
  • Because we are still putting the finishing touches on the schedule, we reserve the right to make a few final changes!
