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!


As of now, our class sizes are limited and will not exceed more than 9 students per educator. This allows us the ability to provide great, interactive learning opportunities.

We have a safe protocol established for camper drop-off and pick-up. Social distancing will be implemented in the classroom, whether inside or outside.

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!


New for summer 2020!

Travel back in time to experience the arts, cultures, and inventions of the world! Solve STEM challenges, plan theatrical skits, create your own artwork, and interact with real artifacts from the past. Make new friends as you witness the creation of civilizations from far and near in time and work together to make it back to 2020. This camp is a blast from the past!


New for summer 2020!

How much do we really know about dinosaurs? Our campers will explore that question in this immersive STEAM camp through hands-on science experiments in paleontology and geology. Create your own “fossil” and bury it for your new friends to find and assemble, and see for yourself how BIG dinosaurs were! By the end of this camp, you really will be saying, "Dinosaurs rock!”

*Dates are subject to change

Aug. 3-6 from 12:30-5 p.m.


Back by popular demand!

Explore the vast universe and discover the great depths of our galaxy! Every day, campers will work in teams to complete STEM challenges. They will complete science experiments to see what it would take to explore the extreme temperatures of Venus and experience our updated computer space program in our theater. And for the creative campers out there, we will explore the “A: Arts” in STEAM in our daily Astro Art Hour and SciFi Hour.

The Journey Museum and Learning Center regularly adds new events, exhibits, and features to the expansive museum, covering American history, Black Hills history, and Native American culture.
