Join us for one - or all six! - weeks of summer fun and learning designed just for our youngest campers. These HALF DAY camps will offer a new theme each week for campers to explore, and campers will be divided into age-appropriate groups with activities geared just for them. Please keep in mind that these HALF DAY camps offer the choice of a morning (8:30-11:30 a.m.) OR afternoon (12:30-3:30 p.m.) option. 

PARENTS/GUARDIANS

Please note that families will be asked to pack a snack, or pay an additional $5 per week. Microwaves and refrigerators are not available, so please do not pack snacks that require heating, and pack perishable items with an ice pack.

The maximum attendance per camp is 15 students (per age group); 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.
