Local museums offer fun summer camps, classes & special activities for kids

Get ready for some summertime fun!  Instead of the traditional summer camps for kids, think about local museums and destinations that also offer unique and fun activities.

From learning more about art to archery or creepy crawlers to deep space, nearly a dozen Sacramento area museums and destinations are offering special hands-on summer classes, camps and activities for kids. While an impressive and complete listing is available (and continually updated) at http://sacmuseums.org/summer-camps/, a sampling of the summer camps offered by local museums include the following:

  • A Power Camp at the California Automobile Museum where campers will experience how all different types of power drives cities and transportation. Campers will learn about steam engines, bio fuel, electric cars, hydrogen fuel cells, solar power, batteries, and more. Campers will also make model cars, take apart engines, drive go-karts, ride in classic cars, and more.
     
  • A California Time Traveler Camp at the California Museum where young adventurers engage in learning experiences as they travel back in time to the state’s significant eras. A combination of exhibit tours, excursions to nearby sites and hands-on activities, daily itineraries begin in modern California and end in the state’s prehistoric past over 10,000 years ago.
  • Studio Camps at Verge Center for the Arts where campers learn how to work with clay and create objects of their minds eye. The pieces will be fired and glazed by the students so they may see the full process of ceramics. A different artistic medium will be presented every day from fiber arts to comic books.

Availability is limited and costs vary.  Parents are encouraged to connect with the individual museum(s) of interest for more details and to explore availability.
