It is the height of school tour season and some exhibits are always a hit with kids! That's why we planned this year's Summer Adventure Camps around the Museum's Egyptian mummies and World War II exhibit. Summer Adventure Camps are scheduled for two weeks in June. Register by Monday, May 25 to guarantee a camp t-shirt.

Dive into the world of ancient Egypt through our Master of the Mummies Summer Camp.

Campers will craft costumes, props, and backgrounds to help recreate Egyptian history for family and friends at their final exhibit opening. This camp includes three days of fun and educational learning, an exclusive exhibit opening with refreshments for campers and their families, and a 2015 camp t-shirt.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work behind the scenes at a museum, studying unique artifacts and putting together displays for everyone to see? The Museum Apprentice Program is for you! This year, participants will design and build their own exhibit about World War II. Museum staff will share expertise on exhibits and assist campers in building a unique project for the public to enjoy. This camp includes three days of fun and educational learning, an exclusive exhibit opening with refreshments for campers and their families, and a 2015 camp t-shirt.
