The museum is closed to the public until further notice. We look forward to reopening once it is appropriate to do so.

New for 2020!
Virtual SUmmer Camps

June 1 – august 7, 2020

In light of the current situation, The Durham Museum Summer Camps will be going virtual June 1 – August 7. Sign up to attend camp from the comfort of your own home! Campers attending a virtual camp will meet daily via Zoom for the week they are enrolled in camp. Each daily session lasts for 60 minutes and is led by experienced museum educators in small groups to ensure a hands-on and engaging experience. The best part? Each virtual camp comes with all of the supplies you need and a camp t-shirt*! Sign up at least one week in advance and you will receive your supply kit in the mail prior to the beginning of camp.

*Please note, t-shirts are issued one time per child; not one per camp week.

Time to ShineThink outside the box for a great summer camp experience with The Durham!

TESTIMONIALS

Virtual camp at The Durham is sure to offer your child a great summer experience, but we know it’s nice to hear that from a parent or two who has already experienced our virtual summer camps…

  • “My son participated in many virtual summer camps and other virtual activities, and the Durham’s camp was by far the best. Each day was well-planned, the activities were engaging and age-appropriate, and the teacher was patient and knowledgeable. It was fun to have a summer camp t-shirt even though he was stuck at home. I highly recommend the Durham’s virtual summer camps.”
    – VIRTUAL CAMP PARENT
  • “Our family feels very fortunate to have the Durham Museum in our hometown. The distance learning options have provided us with tremendous insight into the museum and we are excited to continue learning virtually through the summer.”
    – VIRTUAL CAMP PARENT
  • “Our kids in each camp very much enjoyed themselves. It was a great opportunity to get some nicely thought out educational projects and teachings. It was also a great change of pace for them with the whole stay in place situations. They looked forward to it each day.    I must say I was slightly surprised on how well it went being the first round and what I can only guess what a little bit of a scramble to make happen in the crazy time we are going through right now. So great Job Durham Museum you did not disappoint with these two camps.”
