Regardless of how you’ve defined school this year, everybody is excited that the end is in sight. There’s help on the horizon. Just hold on a few more months and then find fabulous fun at The Children’s Museum of the Upstate (TCMU).
Beginning Monday, June 7th, the Museum will be conducting 9 weeks of summer camp, guaranteed to peak the interest of all ages. With a different focus each week, the camps are “designed to spark discovery, collaboration, creation, learning and FUN!”
In addition to free time in the Museum, campers can enjoy projects, trivia challenges, STEM activities and much, much more. Special guests and Museum guides will lead children in age appropriate experiences.
We promise there will never be a dull moment!
Half-day camps are available for pre-schoolers. Campers must be at least 3 years old and potty trained. Elementary children can attend half-day or full-day programs. Half-day hours are 9am-12pm or 1pm- 4pm. Lunch Bunch Hour (12-1pm, $30) is offered for half-day campers. Full day campers bring their own lunch and water bottle.
