Adventures in Nature

This Summer, Give Your Child the World!

Adventures in Nature is a day camp offered every summer and seasonally throughout the school year. Children in grades K through 8 have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of Museum topics — Earth's features, creatures, and cultures from around the globe. Enroll your children in our hands-on, interactive classes and they will learn about fascinating topics through active encounters that spark children's natural curiosity and creativity.

All camps are from 9 am to 3 pm daily and are one week in length.

Adventures in Nature Spring Day Camp!

The Tar Pits: Past, Present and Future!
March 30 – April 3, 2015

This spring, NHM invites your child to join us for Adventures in Nature Spring Day Camp.  Spring Camp is held at the Page Museum and this week campers grades K through 4 will discover traces of the Ice Age past! Scientists at the Page Museum are working daily to uncover plants and animals that only lived during the Pleistocene and many who are still alive today! Unlike any other camp, we give a hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience, as well as a creative outlet to all participants. It’s so much adventure, your child’s camp memories will surely last a lifetime.
