Grow and discover year-round! Interactive camps at The Journey Museum and Learning Center provide students with an endless source of enriching activities and unforgettable experiences. They'll learn about an incredible range of topics in a unique setting. 

Students learn in different ways, so offering them a unique camp or class allows them to learn outside of the traditional classroom setting. Give them a summer that lets them learn and have fun during their time away from school.

STEAM-POWERED - all of our camps deliberately exercise educational activities that challenge the boundaries of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. Our camps are well-balanced learning opportunities that will provide learners of all types the kind of fun and interactive educational activities that will have your campers asking for more!

Our camps are intentionally limited to 39 campers per week. This allows us the ability to provide great, interactive learning opportunities. Each camp will have a minimum of three leaders. We will divide campers up by age, at times separating and combining groups. This is to find the right balance for curriculums based on ages and peers. Our curriculums are designed far in advance but can and do change depending on the composition of camper ages, weather, and other considerations as the week evolves. Because of limited camper registration, our camps have traditionally sold out well in advance to the actual deadlines. We are prepared to enroll your camper today!
