Kindergarten Summer Camp Sessions
NHMU Kindergarten camps are designed for children who will enter Kindergarten in the fall of 2022. All sessions are offered in a half-day, Monday - Thursday format. We'll break mid-morning for a snack brought from home. We are doing everything we can do stop the spread of COVID-19. We ask that all participants wear a mask during camp since we are not sure who has been vaccinated, it is challenging to keep physically distanced, and we have campers from multiple households in our sessions. To help us provide the best possible camp experience for your child, be sure to review the NHMU Summer Camp FAQ as well as our Important Information for Summer Camp 2022 document for information about camp logistics and COVID precautions. Please note that not all school districts begin and end summer break at the same time—check your school schedule before registering.
Wait List: We will not be offering a wait list this summer. Instead, we will post any open slots on the Thursday prior to each camp week. These will be on a first come, first serve basis.
Let's Build with LEGO®
Join us for a week of LEGO® building bliss! Campers will utilize a range of LEGO® educational kits as they build bridges, pinwheels, spinning tops, launchers, and more. Campers will practice critical thinking while strengthening communication and problem-solving skills as they participate in these STEAM-related projects. Please note that students will take apart all LEGO® creations at the end of each session and will not keep any of the LEGO® bricks. We encourage them to bring non-valuable cameras to take pictures.

Each day campers will build upon their ‘monster bodies’ as they learn about each of the five senses—from mystery smells, ear anatomy, and taste tests to animal eyes and texture exploration.
