Summer Camps

 Create and Investigate with us this Summer!

PreK Camp an CMofIL  is the opportunity for your child to engage in hands-on educational fun! The best part- they won’t even know they’re learning! Campers will make slime, messy art, explore forces, and investigate the world of technology. PreK Camp is a GREAT way to introduce your child to a classroom setting and get a head start on kindergarten readiness skills.

Class sizes are limited to 15 children with a ratio of 3 children to one adult. Every day will include a hands-on activity, story, playtime in the Museum, and snack.  

 Pre-K Camps are for children aged 3 to 5 years old.  Students must be potty-trained, please!  Camp is every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am to 11:00 am (drop off available at 8:45 am). Each week will have a special theme and each day includes story time, hands-on activities, snack, and playtime. Close-toed shoes are required.
