Our Summer@Home lineup provides the supplies, the excitment, and the expert facilitation you expect of our Summer Camp programming, all in the comfort of your own home.

Summer@Home activities are designed for your child to experience while at home. NHMU facilitators will join your child and other participants in a password-protected Zoom Room for interactice science and nature activities and experiments, games and more. Session materials will be sent by mail in advance.

Summer@Home has been created with rising 3rd - 5th graders in mind.

Priority registration for our Copper Club members begins at 10am on March 11.

Early registration for our Family level members and above beings at 10am on March 15 

Registration will open to the general public at 10am on March 22.

These sessions will have no more than 10-12 participants. This allows our staff and participants to interact with one another during the sessions. 

Yes, you’ll have an opportunity to tell us how many children will be participating in your household. We do request that each child either has their own computer device in seperate spaces, or they share one. This is due to the noise feedback that occurs when two devices are unmuted next to one another.

We have four sessions listed right now. Depending on demand and staffing ability, we may open additional sessions. 

Everything except for very basic supplies like paper, pencils, tape and such are packed up and mailed to your home and will arrive a few days prior to your first session. 

To transfer from one session to another, please follow these steps: First, verify space is available in the session you’d like to move into. Second, register and pay for that session. Third, email the Camp Director letting us know what session you are transferring out of. Note that we are unable to offer refunds within seven days of the start of a session.

If you need to cancel your child's registration, email the Camp Director as soon as possible. If we can fill your spot, you will receive a full refund, less a $15 admin fee. If we cannot fill your spot, you will receive 75% of your registration fee.
