Camp Explorations 2020 — Home Explorers

Join us for our at-home virtual summer camp where your kids can stay connected to camp and interact with others their age! The University of Michigan Museum of Natural History virtual summer camp sessions mix a live Zoom program hosted by museum educators, with daily crafts, independent science activities and a weekly family activity. Home Explorers topics include paleontology, astronomy, zoology and more!  For completed grades 1-6.

Each session includes:

  • Daily crafts with instructions (most materials included)
  • Daily independent activities (instructions included)
  • One family activity 
  • Zoom times and invites for live meetings with camp counselors.  Zoom class sizes will be grouped by age and have no more than 15 campers per group. There will be 2 instructors on each live meeting to ensure a 1:7 ratio. 

Some supplies are not provided (ex. scissors, crayons, markers).  Each registered camper will receive one camp shirt for the summer.

Campers will need access to a computer or tablet (with a microphone and camera), and reliable internet. Once you register, more information will be emailed to you about the virtual platform and how to pick up materials. Curbside, contactless pickup will be done at the museum.


Each session is $125.
