Parents and guardians, spring break has passed and now is the time to plan for summer vacation. The Museum of World Treasures offers Summer Adventure Camp opportunities for a variety of age groups and on different historical topics. Registration ends May 16th; please call 316.263.1311 to sign up or for more information.

This year camp will be offered in two-day sessions, determined by grade level. Please see the schedule below for appropriate dates. Each camper will receive a t-shirt and lunch will be provided on the second day.

The cost for a two-day camp is $80 per child; Museum Members have a special $70 per child rate.  Ask us about other Membership perks.

Campers will learn about paleontology in June with nationally recognized and award-winning science teacher Claire Overstake. Long-time educator Larry Riedlinger will return to teach about ancient civilizations in July. Museum staff will teach the popular Museum Apprentice Camp as a session for 6th – 9th grade kids.

Apprentice Campers create, design, and place a new exhibit in the Children's Activity Center.
