The Natural History Museum of Utah has an amazing selection of natural science and STEAM-related summer camps lined up for your kids and grandkids this summer.

Camps are based at the Museum up at the University of Utah, with some camps hosted at partner venues in Salt Lake City. Continue reading for information on registration and camp schedule. We'll be updating this page once our Sneak Peek and camp descriptions are nailed down, sometime in mid-February.

Important 2019 Summer Camp Registration Dates

Registration will open at 10am on the following dates:

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.

  • Not all School Districts begin or end summer break at the same time--check your school schedule before registering.
  • Summer 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 or two half day sessions during the same week will need to bring their own non-refrigerated lunch from home along with a drink. We offer a supervised lunch hour that includes time to explore outside with staff.
