Let's get wild. Summer camp is here! This summer, your little ones can dig for dinosaurs, explore nature's wonders, and learn all about natural science.

We’re offering full-day camps for grades 1-8. Registration begins Monday, March 4, 2024 for members and Monday, March 11, 2024 for non-members.

Camp is NUT FREE. Please plan snacks and lunches accordingly. 

Fun and safety are our top priorities.  

As we begin the 2024 summer camp season, The Nat’s number one priority continues to be the health and well-being of our campers, staff, and volunteers—ensuring that everyone can safely participate in each day of the camp program. As a reminder, campers should not attend their program if they are feeling sick or experiencing symptoms of any cold-like virus until those symptoms start to improve and there is no fever for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication). If any camper tests positive for COVID-19, please do not attend camp and notify our Reservation Coordinator. 

Campers are expected to show respect for their fellow campers, instructors, staff, the Museum, and the environment. Disruptive behavior and physical aggression are not permitted. If a problem persists, campers may be removed from the program with no refund. Please review behavior expectations with your child before their first day of camp. We want everyone to make friends and memories that last a lifetime, and we look forward to sharing the wonders of the natural world with your child
