Engage your kids in science and engineering summer camps at The Works Museum! Featuring new camps each season, as well as favorites like LEGO Robotics, Code Camp, architecture, and more. Our summer camps for kids at The Works are ideal for girls and boys ages 5-13. Find camps exclusively for your PreK budding engineers, camps for girls such as our Rosie Revere Engineer and Code Camp for Girls, camps using the LEGO WeDo construction set, and add-on Friday Fun Days. Summer camp season at The Works Museum is alive with enthusiasm and creative engineering.

Camper safety is always our top priority.

As always, we’ll continue to follow the recommendations of Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health. We will continue to update our website and camp families with any changes to health and safety guidelines.

Summer Camps at Minnesota Children’s Museum

This summer we’re bringing some of our favorite camps to Minnesota Children’s Museum in downtown Saint Paul. Join us as we explore engineering with topics like robotics, carpentry, space travel, architecture, and more! These camps feature the same educators and hands-on engineering activities as our camps in Bloomington, just brought to Minnesota Children’s Museum’s awesome facility.
