2018 Summer Camps for Kindergarten

The Natural History Museum of Utah has an amazing selection of natural science and STEAM-related camps lined up for your child entering kindergarten this fall!

NHMU Kindergarten camps are designed for children who will enter kindergarten in the fall of 2018 and who are completely potty trained. Each camp is created using Utah’s Early Childhood Core Standards. For our full-day session, time between morning and afternoon sessions will be spent eating a lunch brought from home and exploring outside with Museum staff. Please note that not all school districts begin or end summer break at the same time—check your school schedule before registering. Click here to register.

Here's some examples of our camps designed for kindergarteners:

  • SENSEsational Science — Campers will explore the natural world using one of the five senses to observe and investigate. There will be a variety of hands-on discoveries, Museum tours, art projects, and an array of exciting learning opportunities—both inside and outside the Museum.
  • Under Construction — This camp will provide ample opportunities for children to gain an understanding of force, motion, and the properties of materials. Campers will strengthen problem-solving skills as they resolve an assortment of building and puzzle challenges. How can we make a structure balance? How do we make a bridge stronger? How do certain parts go together to make a whole? The possibilities are endless!
  • Jr Detectives — In this camp session, students will utilize the scientific method to explore their world. They’ll use scientific tools to observe, collect, and interpret information while communicating with others and drawing conclusions. Campers will go on Museum-wide scavenger hunts, explore our Paleontology Lab, and participate in many hands-on/minds-on activities as they learn about the world around them.
