Summer 2018

Registration is open now!

Galveston Children’s Museum’s summer camps offer science and engineering topics in an atmosphere of inquiry.  Each session presents activities designed to actively engage children and promote wonder, questions, and critical thinking.  Our camps are not intended to stop at the end of the session but hopefully will continue to spark continued interest and in the best case scenario lead to heightening curiosity about our wonderful world.

We hope you will join us on our new adventures.

Ages 4 – 6 years old.

Tinkering

Maker camps indeed.  These sessions are all about creating things that move: moving sound waves, moving up, moving on water, moving round and round and moving through the air.
