Spring Break camps at The Works Museum in Minnesota.

Spring Break Camps For Kids

Looking for a Spring Break Camp in the Twin Cities area? Whether you’re seeking childcare during school release days or simply want to add some structure to your kids’ spring break, The Works Museum can help with our day camps for school-aged kids.

Our science and engineering day camps are ideal for kids ages 5-10. At past school break camps, kids constructed cardboard castles, designed contraptions, created wizardly potions, took apart electronics on a treasure hunt for cool components, built ball runs and K’nex creations and much more.

With lots of opportunities to design, build, and create – AKA: engineer! –  your camper will have a great time and stay busy during your Twin Cities stay-cation. Many camps are offered in half-day or one-day options to give you more flexibility in planning your spring break.

My kids love school break camps at The Works. They come home with fun creations and lots of ideas for things they want to design and build. I often find their projects re-purposed into new inventions weeks or even months after they’ve attended camp. We’ll definitely come back next year!
