Camps & Clubs (ages 5-12)

Camp at the Museums of Burlington is a fun-filled, highly interactive experience for children to learn, meet new friends and leave a lasting impression for years to come.  Throughout the year we offer children different camp experiences to correspond with their free time during the school year as well as in the summer.  During the school year we offer a March Break Camp as well as additional camps on PA days and in the summer we offer five weeks of camp during July and August.

Camps have a theme for the week and each day pertains to the overall theme. Every day is an individual day with different activities. 

Our camps are open to anyone between the ages of 5 and 12.

The day begins at 9:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm, accommodating morning and mid-afternoon nutrition breaks as well as a lunch time.  Nutrition items and lunches are NOT provided.

Please be aware that the Museums of Burlington programs are peanut free. We also ask parents to send children appropriately dressed and protected for the weather via winter or summer gear.

*****NOTE: Camp at the Museums of Burlington is SOLD OUT for summer 2018.  Check back here or sign up for our newsletter to keep up to date about future camps!
