On-site camps are finally here! 

Engage your kids in science and engineering summer camps at The Works Museum! While we’re not able to offer our full schedule of summer camps due to COVID-19, we’re making a limited number of in-person STEM camps available. These are the same camps your young engineers know and love, but with smaller class sizes and additional safety and sanitizing precautions.

Museum safety procedures for in-person camps during COVID-19.

Not ready for in-person camps? Check out our schedule of virtual summer camps.
