Museum Camps are the perfect way to keep your kids busy, engaged and learning all break long. So grab your calendar and start planning the perfect adventure for your little explorers.

From muggles to Jedis, master builders to mad scientists, there’s a camp for every kid. Let your imagination run wild and put your engineering skills to the test in LEGO Master Builder and LEGO Engineering camps. Put on a pair of goggles and get your hands dirty as you dive into icky, sticky experiments and find which chemicals react to cause flashes and bangs in Crazy Chemistry Camp. Tap your inner Spielberg and learn about the science of special effects as you work to create characters, design a set, write a script and shoot a stop-motion animated film in Future Filmmakers Camp.

Get your invitation to Hogwarts, hop on your broomstick and fly to CMC to learn how to defend yourself against the Dark Arts and participate in the TriWizard Tournament at Harry Potter Camp. Or blast off to Mars and work alongside your fellow space campers to build a habitat to survive on the Red Planet in Mission to Mars Camp. But first you’ll need to learn about the science behind rockets, rovers and more by designing your own bottle rocket as you discover more about NASA’s space program at Rocket Science Camp.

Hit the midway, build your own rollercoaster and create bumper cars before experiencing the science of amusement parks firsthand at Amusement Park Jr. Camp. At Medical Camp you can learn basic first aid skills, participate in dissections, meet professionals from the medical field and discover what it takes to be a doctor. Put down the stethoscope and pick up a light saber at Jr. Jedi and Star Wars camps, where you’ll undergo extensive Jedi training and work together to destroy the Empire’s battle station.
