Summer Camp 2013 Registration

Science Adventure Classes

New this summer!
NHMU is pleased to introduce a new science enrichment opportunity this summer. Science Adventure Classes are week-long programs that run for 2 1/2 hours each day and are available for kids entering Kindergarten through 5th Grade in the fall. Science Adventure Classes cover many of the same subjects and much of the same content offered in our traditional camp program.  But the shorter day allows flexibility in your summer planning!

Museum Members receive discounted pricing. You can review member discounts in the next step of the registration process. Learn about Membership — and join — here.
