Join us for a “DINO”-Mite summer!

May 28 – August 2, 2019

We’re bringing in a special guest as our summer camp mascot this year: Scotty the Tyrannosaur!

In addition to our special Dino-themed camps, The Durham Museum is offering 10 weeks of summer fun including our signature “Meet the Metro-O” and “Wizard Academy” camps. All camps are led by certified teachers and supported by additional staff to create an engaging, and dare we say educational, camp experience. Half-day and full-day programs are available for 1st-2nd grades, 3rd-4th grades, and 5th-6th grades. (Please note these are the grade levels your child will be entering in the 2019-2020 school year.) The Durham Museum also offers a “Beyond the Camp” experience for campers who want to arrive early or stay late.
