NHMU Summer Camps

Thanks for a great season. While our summer programming certainly looked different this year due to COVID-19, it was wonderful to provide new content and a new platform with our Summer@Home program that engaged participants from across Utah and the country. We even had friends from Canada attend! As always, we will continue to work toward providing innovative and exciting programming that spark passion and curiosity. Check back in the spring for information about Summer Camp 2021.
