Experience Friday Fun Days and

One-Day Camps for Kids Ages 6-12

Register your child for a Friday Fun Day camp, or a One-Day camp during July 4th week.  In addition to hands-on activities with our STEM focus, campers enjoy museum exploration, outdoor games, and a pizza lunch.

Featuring weekly themes such as Wacky Water Works, Extreme Cardboard Castles, or LEGO City, these one-day camps are great as stand-alone experiences or as additions to your child’s week of camp with us.

Friday Fun Days are generously sponsored by The Works Museum Board of Trustees.

Tips for camp registration:

  • Our camp registration system is brand new. We’ve worked hard to address any snags in the process, but if you encounter any difficulties, please email camp@theworks.org, or call 952.888.4262, opt. 3 during workday hours to receive assistance. We’ll call you back within 24 hours or on Monday if you call over the weekend.
  • 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.
