  • Learning and Fun Beyond the Galleries

    We offer fun and educational day camps and programs throughout the year – so kids can discover more about things they like!
  • Your Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum offers several popular camps and educational programs throughout the year. Whether you’re looking for a way to keep the kids busy over spring, summer or winter break, or searching for a fun after school program, we offer a wide variety of options that are entertaining, educational and designed for kids. We also partner with other community organizations to develop new and exciting camps.

    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?
