Summer is coming. Museum Camps are back.

Camps on sale for Members Feb. 1, general Feb. 15

CINCINNATI –  When school is out, Camps are in.

It doesn’t look like it outside, but summer is fast approaching and a houseful of energized kids is coming with it. But don’t worry, Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC) has you covered. CMC’s Museum Camps are the perfect cure for summertime boredom, blues and brain drain. Camps go on sale for CMC Members February 1 and for non-Members on February 15.

With Camps available for grades K-6, there’s a Camp for every interest. We’re talking Amusement Park Science, LEGO® Movie Magic, Awesome Animals and Paleontology Camps, to name just a few. Or maybe you have an aspiring painter at home ready to unleash their latest masterpiece at Little Artists Camp. Back again is Kitchen Science Camp, where Campers not only get to try their hand at basic culinary skills but also test their taste buds with their kitchen creations in the Cr(eat)e Culinary Studio featuring the Kroger Food Lab. Plus, CMC is taking Camps offsite to the Cincinnati Observatory and the campus of Northern Kentucky University so there’s bound to be one to fit your interest, your schedule and your areas.

Museum Camps aren’t just a fun escape for kids, they’re a critical learning experience that builds on the lessons learned during the school year and pushes back on the brain drain of summer. Hands-on learning, experiments and museum exploration reenergize students worn out by textbooks and classrooms and excites them to revisit those concepts in the new school year. Plus, Campers reconnect with old friends, make new friends and fill your home with “I can’t wait to go back to Camp tomorrow!” instead of “I’m bored.”

Each Camp at CMC includes time spent exploring museums and some Camps include OMNIMAX® films. Camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday with select four-day Camps due to holidays. The first Camps start the week of May 28 and run through the week of August 5.
