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 Winter Day Camp

Mummies & More! - January 4-8, 2016

This winter, NHM invites your child to join us for Adventures in Nature Winter Day Camp.  Winter camp this year is held at the Natural History Museum and offers kids the chance to discover the world of ancient Egypt and Peru by exploring the Museum’s latest exhibition, Mummies: New Secrets from the Tombs. 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.
