Single Day Camps

Ages 8-11 | 8:30 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Members $60 per day | Non Members $65 per day
*Note: Online registration closes two (2) weeks prior to camp dates.

NEW for 2019! These single day camps offer a shorter camp option for busy families, and allow students to explore camps at the Boonshoft Museum. Note that some topics are offered during both weeks to give campers a second chance to catch some of our favorites!

PARENTS/GUARDIANS

Please plan to provide your camper(s) with a bagged lunch. Microwaves and refrigerators are not available, so please do not pack lunches that require heating, and pack perishable items with an ice pack.

The maximum attendance per camp is 20 students; minimum attendance per camp is 8. The Boonshoft Museum reserves the right to cancel any camps not reaching the minimum attendance required, and participants will be notified one week prior to the camp run date. Campers will be transferred to another camp of their choice at no additional fee. If no other sessions are available, a full refund will be issued. Please be sure to review your selections prior to final checkout, as all sales are final. If you wish to make changes after completing registration, a $25 administrative fee will be added to the card used to pay for camp.
