Summer means longer days, warmer temperatures and endless opportunities for children to explore at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum.
This summer, there are so many chances to learn cool science concepts and have hands-on learning opportunities at summer camp. Our trained and experienced educators provide a blend of educational and interactive play experiences for all children.
In addition to having a great week at summer camp, learning about a specific topic, each camper will have an opportunity to explore the Museum and spend time on the Ropes Challenge Course.
