Tips for camp registration:

  • Want a 5-day experience for your camper? Add on a Friday Fun Day to the regular camp week.
  • Want to try a 1-day experience? Register just for Friday Fun Days or look at our July 4th week camps.
  • The session you wanted is full? Get on the wait list to be notified if we’re able to add extra sessions.
  • Want a full-day experience? Register for an a.m. and p.m. camp. We supervise campers while they enjoy lunch from home and play between camps.
  • Drop-off begins at 8:30 for a.m. camps and at 12:30 for p.m. camps.
  • Pick-up is from 12-12:30 for a.m. camps and 4-4:15 for p.m. camps. Add aftercare to extend your child’s day to 5 p.m. by selecting the “with aftercare” version of your camp selection. Aftercare is an additional $28 for Monday-Thursday camps, and $7 for Friday Fun Days or One-Day camps.
  • By registering for camp you attest that you have read and agree to the camp and cancellation policies of The Works Museum.
  • Please note there is summer road construction in our surrounding area. Please plan adequate travel time.
