The Durham Museum is excited to welcome kids back to the museum for Winter Camp! This year’s camps take place December 21-23, 28-30 and January 3-4.

Families can register campers in Kindergarten-5th grade for individual days or sign up for a 3-day “week” to receive an added discount. Camps are scheduled from 9AM-4PM, with an optional Beyond the Camp experience for early drop-off (7:30AM) and late pick-up (5:30PM). A supervised lunch hour is provided for all campers, and lunches can be brought from home or ordered from the museum before camp begins each day for $5 per camper.

“My daughter has loved everything about camp this week. She has talked nonstop about all of the fun activities and she even asked me to pick her up late because she wanted more time to do the activities and play with the friends, she made this week.”
