Museum Camp

Our Durham camps are based at the Museum of Life and Science, one of the most popular museums and science centers in North Carolina.

Campers may spend time at the Museum gaining new perspectives in Hideaway Woods, learning about wolves and bears inside Explore the Wild, or getting messy at Earth Moves. Campers will build new skills as they work on daily and week-long projects designed to engage their imagination and demonstrate their new-found knowledge in a structured setting. Browse our camp offerings to find the perfect camp for your budding scientist!
