Museum Camps aren’t just a fun escape for kids, they’re a critical learning experience that builds on the lessons learned during the school year and pushes back on the brain drain of summer. Hands-on learning, experiments and museum exploration reenergize students worn out by textbooks and classrooms and excites them to revisit those concepts in the new school year. Plus, Campers reconnect with old friends, make new friends and fill your home with “I can’t wait to go back to Camp tomorrow.” instead of “I’m bored.”
