School Break Camps
Fall Break 2014: October 10th and 13th
Fall Break is right around the corner! The Terre Haute Children’s Museum is offering two awesome day camp options for your little scientist during the break. Friday, October 10th is all about Terrific Transformations. Watch substances change forms, learn about animals that change appearance and watch colors transform before your eyes. Monday, October 13th will focus on Stellar Structures. We will design and build strong boats, tall towers and sturdy containers. Campers will also get play time in the museum, a chance to watch a movie in the Theater and two snacks. Lunch will need to be brought to camp each day.
Fall Break Camp will be Friday, October 10th and Monday, October 13th from 8A-3P each day. Camp is $40 for members of the museum and $45 for non-members each day. Receive a $5 discount off of total cost of camp if you sign up for both days. Participants must be in Kindergarten- 4th grade to register.
Space is limited, sign up today! Download the Registration Form HERE.
Summer Science Camps
The Summer of 2014 was AWESOME! Thanks to all the kiddos, staff and parents that made this summer amazing! Check back next Spring to see what we have to offer for the Summer of 2015! We have some pretty cool things in mind. :)
- The Terre Haute Children’s Museum Summer Science Camps are for children entering K-1st Grade and children entering 2nd-4th Grade. Each camp is designed with activities and games for the specific age groups.
- Each camp is Monday through Friday from 8AM-12PM. Drop-off will not begin until 7:50AM, and pick-up happens promptly at 12:00PM. A late fee of $1 per minute will be applied for children picked up after 12:05PM.
- Parents or caregivers must be present during drop-off and pick-up. You must sign your child in and out each day at the Field Trip Entrance in the rear of the building.
- The camp experience is priceless, however, supplies and staff are needed to make each week a quality experience. Each week costs $100 (members) and $110 (non-members). Looking for a discount? Send us a copy of your child’s most recent (does not need to be final) report card. Children will receive $2 off total cost for every A, B, or O they earn (Up to 5 per child). Example: 2 A’s and 3 B’s equal $10 off total cost of camp(s).
- Summer Science Camp is an interactive and fun experience designed to give children a better understanding of different areas of science. Children will explore science through hands-on experiments and demonstrations. All of the activities are supervised by experienced staff and are created with fun and interactive education in mind!
