Welcome to The Perkins Museum Environmental Science Day Camp for children in Grades 1-7.

Register your young scientist for a week of outside ativities, field excursions and walks. Day-campers will engage in hands-on experimentations tailored to their age groups. In addition, students will spend some recreational  time each day playing outside or visiting the Perkins Museum of Geology.

Please join us for field excursions and walks that explore the natural world from an environmental perspective. Curriculum content may include botany, biology, geology, soils, hydrology, chemistry or other natural science themes. Hands-on activities and experimentation is tailored to separate age groups (Grades 1-2, 3-4, & 5-7) with breaks for snacks, lunch and recreational playing. The Day Camp will be taught by local K-12 teachers and student assistants. Your child will be one of 45-50 students who will work with our staff (7:1 student/teacher ratio). Check out some past camp images from grades 1-2, 3-4, & 5-7.
