Set Your Child Up for Success...

Our Homeschool Adventures Program is designed for kids to work independently to create and learn to problem solve. We encourage parents to use this time to run an errand or take a walk in the park, so that their children can get the full benefit of their Gilbert House Homeschool Adventure.

Children of all abilities are encouraged to participate in our camps and classes. In order to ensure a fun and safe experience for your child, please inform us if your child has any allergies and/or special needs. Please email Julia Golden, Education Coordinator, at if you would like to inquire further. Gilbert House Children’s Museum reserves the right to request 1:1 supervision for participants.
