What camp should I register my child for based on their age and grade level?
  • All camp ages groups are intended for “rising” campers of that grade.
  • Pre-K camp is for 3K and 4K learners. The minimum age for camp is 3 years old and all campers must be fully potty-trained.
  • K5-5th grade camp is for rising Kindergarteners through rising 5th graders.
  • TCMU recommends that campers that are comfortable with group projects, science experiences and solo art projects should enroll in K5-5th grade camp. It is recommended that campers still getting comfortable with shapes and colors should enroll in PreK. Caregivers are welcome to select the option that they feel best suits their young learner. For questions about which option is best for your child, please contact [email protected]
How can I get help registering for camp?

Parents are encouraged to register online. If you need assistance with registration, please e-mail [email protected] or come in person to TCMU and one of our Guest Services representatives will be happy to help! TCMU is not able to register for camp over the phone. 

Please note: Individual orders must be placed per camper. You cannot purchase camps for multiple campers at a time.

What will my camper do at camp?

Each week is jam-packed with themed STEAM-based activities in addition to supervised free play in the museum and group games. Our curriculum provides campers the opportunity to learn and explore in the museum’s unique and playful setting.

Is food provided for my child?
