Maker Magic

Campers will harness their creativity and problem solving skills as they tap into their inner inventor.

The maker movement is here to stay. Campers will harness their creativity and problem solving skills as they generate ideas and tap into their inner inventor during this week of making!

Can you really make an instrument out of a can? Why, yes you can! Campers will take over The Forge, our makerspace, and will work with Forge Facilitators to explore a variety of processes and learn how to use new tools. Projects will include woodworking, sewing, electronics and more. Campers should come ready to prototype, test and, most importantly, have fun!

Warning: your camper may start collecting scrap items from around the house. It’s all part of the creative reuse process!

Procedures

For all the nuts and bolts about summer camp, click here for our 2023 Summer Camp Guide. Here you will find details about pick-up and drop-off procedures, what to bring, a sample schedule, health and safety protocols, required forms and more

Waitlist Procedure

Summer camps are popular and will sell out. After registration opens, you will be able to add yourself to the waitlist if you're interested. If a camp spot opens, we will first email all Science Museum members on the waitlist at the same time. If the spot remains open after 24 hours, we will email the rest of the waitlist. We will do this any time a spot opens in a camp.

Scholarships

The Science Museum is pleased to offer a limited number of weekly summer camp scholarships to its Museums for All member families. If you are a current Museums for All member and would like to learn more about summer camp scholarships, please click here. If you are interested in becoming a Museums for All member, click here.
