Please Note:

  • Each camp is designed to capture the attention and interest of your child and is targeted for the grade they will enter in the fall of the current year.
  • NHMU Summer Camps run in week-long half-day or full-day formats (we have one 3-day and one 4-day week due to July holidays).
  • 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.
