Winter Break camps at The Works Museum in Minnesota.

Winter Camps For Kids  

We’ve all experienced it – winter break in the Twin Cities is awesome, until it’s not. The kids are bouncing off the walls, battling with you over screen time, and doing science and engineering experiments in places you’d rather they’d not. Let The Works Museum help with our hands-on winter camps for kids.

We’ll keep your school-age kids busy and encourage science and engineering fun. Ideal for kids ages 5-12, our indoor winter camps for kids let them explore, discover, and create with real tools, materials, and projects. Also check out our full schedule of 2017-2018 School Holiday camps for kids.
