From The Streets of Old Milwaukee to the polar ice caps, the Milwaukee Public Museum's (MPM's) Summer Camps take children to extraordinary places.  They can become anything from a junior astronomer to a dinosaur hunter through exhibit exploration, music, creative art projects, and even behind-the-scenes activities with real artifacts.

The Summer Camps are from June 24 through August 13.  There are camps for those who are four and five years old and for those who are six to eight years old.  All camps are from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. on a single date.  They are $25 per program date, $15 for MPM members.

All camps for those who are four and five are from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. on a single date.  They are $25 per program date, $15 for MPM members.  They begin with a group discussion of the day's topic, followed by a look at authentic artifacts and objects from our collections.  These campers will explore exhibits while learning about cultures and concepts, then return to the classroom for hands-on creative experiences.  Every camp includes make-and-take activities, and all themes are supported through literacy, science, culture, and creative expression.

All camps for those who are six to eight are from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  These two-day camps are $125, $100 for MPM members.  These campers get to experience MPM in a very special way.  Not only do they get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the museum's inner workings, but they get to explore the theme of their camp right in the galleries.  They even get to handle real artifacts.
