  • 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).
  • Scholarships are available. They are limited and based on need. For more information, please contact Abby at the e-mail below.
  • 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!
