Summer Camps and No-School Day Camps for Kids

When school is out, kids can head to the museum for camp programs that emphasize archaeology, paleontology, and museum exploration. The programs engage children in hands-on learning, cooperative activities, and scientific investigation.

No-School Day Camps at the Museum
No-School Day Camps are offered throughout the school year when school is not in session. Kids will dive deep into Oregon’s natural and cultural history through hands-on activities and exploration of museum exhibits. They will join other students with common interests in a friendly, welcoming environment with a small group size - limited to just 16 participants!

Preregistration is required and space is limited, so reserve your spot today! Register by downloading and completing the No-School Day Camp Registration Form. You can also register in person at the museum during regular open hours.
