Join us for weeklong discoveries that relate to science, technology, engineering, art, and math! Each day, we will read a story that relates to our STEAM specific topic of the day and then we will participate in hands-on activities that support that topic. Some topics that we will explore include our human body, space, and more!
Kinder Camps are designed specifically for children preparing to enter Kindergarten. Camp begins with circle time, setting classroom expectations, singing a Hello song, and listening to a story to introduce the day’s topic. Campers enjoy themed hands-on activities, music and movement, and center-based learning. This camp also includes a small snack.

If your family is not quite ready to attend in-person programs, but you are missing Miss Erin’s hands-on activities, we have a kit option for you! Kits includes a link to Miss Erin reading a story. Kits include directions and most supplies needed for three hands-on activities that focus on STEAM based learning through fine motor, process art, and sensory exploration activities. Supplies not included are common household materials such as a cookie sheet, large mixing bowl, measuring cups, etc. A newsletter will be included that will offer bonus activities to try with items from your house or your backyard, Miss Erin’s recipe for the play dough of the month, and suggestions for books to read that go along with our month’s theme.
Additionally, there is an option to receive a toy from our lending library. You would be able to play with this toy for 3 weeks before returning it to the museum. If you wish to borrow a toy with your kit, please select yes on the registration question.

The Maker Space allows children and families to use real tools and materials to design, make, tinker and create projects on their own. Kids can take stuff apart and learn the inner workings of machines, build and make cool things, and just experiment and explore.
