• Camps

  • From after school adventures to summer day camps!

    We have fun day camps and after school programs. We have lots of options for kids to learn more about the things they like!

  • Learning and fun beyond the galleries!


  • The Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum offers several popular camps and after school programs throughout the year. Whether you’re looking for a way to keep the kids busy over summer, spring or winter break or searching for a fun after school program, we have a wide variety of options built around your kids that are entertaining and educational.

    We also partner with other community organizations to develop new and exciting camps. Contact playeducator@michildrensmuseum.com to explore the possibilities.

  • Let’s see what we have planned!

  • What would your day be like if you were a secret agent, paleontologist or fashion designer? What if you could read coded messages, camouflage yourself to be almost invisible, or create culinary masterpieces? Check out the camp and after school program descriptions below.
