04.25.2011 / Reserve your Space now for the Durham Museum Summer Camps

You might be looking out your window, wondering where spring is and not thinking at all about the summer. In fact, you might think it is far too soon to think about summer camps for the kids but its not! If your child is interested in history, art, science, popular culture, fitness, or health then you need look no further than the Summer Camp programs at the Durham Museum.

"These four programs are just a few of over forty different camp programs offered by the Durham this summer."

Long loved by locals for its permanent and traveling exhibits, the giant Christmas tree and Railroad Days, the Durham offers a ton of programs for kids from the ages of 5 – 16. Not sure your kid would be interested? Here are just a few of the programs worth checking out:

  • World of Wizardry - Do you have a five or a six year old that loves magic? World of Wizardry allows campers to learn about this magical world through hands on experiments, games, magic tricks and crafts.  This camp runs from June 20 – 24 from 9 to Noon or from July 25 - 29 from 9 AM to Noon.
  • Home on the Range – If you have a seven or eight year old that’s a budding cowboy or cowgirl, then the Home on the Range camp is for them! Campers explore what it is like to live like cowboys and cowgirls.   From learning to swing a lasso, ride a horse and read a brand and much more all without getting too far from home! This camp runs from June 20 – 24 from 9AM – Noon.
  • CSI: Durham - Budding detectives ages 9-12 will love CSI-Durham.  Campers will learn how to collect clues and apply real life crime scene investigation techniques to solve a museum mystery (even learning to lift and identify fingerprints!) This camp runs from July 5 – 8 from 1PM – 4PM.
  • One-day programs are also available for teens between the ages of 13 & 16, and include studies on history, photography and how to be a museum curator. 

These four programs are just a few of over forty different camp programs offered by the Durham this summer. Spaces fill up fast, so to learn more, or to register, visit:
