NHMU Summer Camps

NHMU Summer Camps
Inspiring passion and sparking curiosity for the natural world!

The mission of NHMU’s Summer Camp Programming is to facilitate authentic learning experiences that inspire passion for the natural world while creating life-long learners.

We will inspire these life-long learners through the use of STEAM-based activities that engage skills from various educational disciplines. By combining inquiry and solution-based investigations with a STEAM education approach to learning, participants are challenged to use cross-disciplinary and critical thinking skills to explore how ALL learning is connected to their everyday world.

Summer Camp 2017 is over. We’d like to thank our Sponsor, Rock Mountain Power, as well as thank all of the parents, grandparents, and care providers that registered their amazing kids in camp this past summer. We had a fantastic year! We plan to begin working on creating another fabulous camp line up for 2018, and will post details beginning in late February of 2018. For now, please note:
