Evansville Museum Summer Day Camps
Join the Evansville Museum for a unique educational experience for campers aged 6 to 10 years old. Our inquiry-based camps allow your child to explore topics in an encouraging learning environment. Take a break from the summer slump for an intensive day of incredibly fun activities. We make kids excited to learn!
Because we use inquiry-style learning, campers of a wide variety of abilities all get to have fun. Campers are welcome and encouraged to return each year and “repeat” camp topics – every year will result in a different experience. Each Evansville Museum camp combines art, history and science activities around that camp’s theme and includes seeing a show in the Koch Immersive Theater.
These all day camps are from 9:00 AM- 4:00 PM and includes a healthy afternoon snack. All campers must pack a self-contained (not refrigerated) lunch.
$40 (Museum Members) and $55 (Not-yet Members) per child
Extended childcare is available (7:30 AM-5:00 PM), additional $10 per day per child. Aftercare requests must be made at least two days before the camp day.
