Summer Camps For Kids

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.

Virtual Summer Camps

We wish we could engineer with you in person, but we’re making the best of it with
virtual camps that are packed with hands-on engineering.

You can still register for our July and August camps – we hope to host those camps in person, with recommended safety precautions. If we aren’t able to, we’ll make more virtual camps available. As always, we’ll continue following the recommendations of Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health, and will share changes to our plans as soon as we have more information.
