Thanks for another great season of Summer Camps!

Summer camps at Gilbert House Children’s Museum utilize a hands-on, inquiry-based approach. Experienced educators guide all the learning opportunities. Our staff, our methods and our children’s museum environment create the perfect combination for a fantastic summer camp experience. Camps are designed to be fun, creative and original as we highlight the best of what the Museum has to offer.

Our Summer Camps Have…

Hands-on Learning
Our summer camps help kids learn to use real objects as they explore real-world concepts. Our unique museum environment is filled with hands-on learning opportunities for campers of all ages.

Small Groups
Our small staff to student ratio allows for personal instruction. Our campers benefit as a close-knit team of learners, allowing for advanced activities unique to Gilbert House Children’s Museum.

All-day Options
We offer the convenience of optional morning and afternoon extended care. Full day camps run from 9:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M.; with extended care available from 8:00-9:00 A.M. and 4:00-5:00 P.M.

Experienced Educators
Our camp staff are trained museum educators who understand how to engage kids in out-of-school environments. Our educators bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with campers and go through a thorough background check and interview process.
