Summer Camp

Camp Aldrich

Join Museum Educators and practicing artists for Camp Aldrich—full-day, week-long arts experiences for children. Campers will learn about the work on view in the galleries, explore the Museum’s two-acre campus, and incorporate the world around them into their art. Each week culminates in a celebration for family and friends.

Caregivers receive personalized daily emails from Camp staff with updates on what the group did during the day, what their child accomplished and learned, and what is planned for the children the following day.
