Evansville Museum Summer Day Camps

Join the Evansville Museum for a summer full of exploring, learning, creating and discovery! Due to popular demand, our Fun Friday Camps have expanded to include other days of the week, and for the first time ever, now include two-day camps for older kids!

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 am to 4 pm and includes a healthy afternoon snack. All campers must pack a self-contained (not refrigerated) lunch.

One Day Camps – $40 (Museum Members) and $55 (Not-yet Members) per child

Two Day Camps – $80 (Museum Members) and $110 (Not-yet Members) per child

Extended childcare is available (7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.), additional $10 per day per child. Aftercare requests must be made at least two days before the camp day.
