Lights Camera Action




December 26-29, 2023

Do you have a favorite movie? Have you ever wondered how it was made? How about what movies looked like 100 years ago? Join us for “Lights, Camera, Action!” as we uncover the science, technology, art and history of film making! Along the way, campers will celebrate the music, costumes and pageantry of White Christmas – The Exhibition.

Food for Thought


JANUARY 2-5, 2024 (SOLD OUT!)

Have you ever wondered why French fries and mac & cheese are so popular in the United States? Or why do we eat certain meals on holidays? For this fun (and delicious!) winter camp, we’ll put both our Chef Hats and Thinking Caps on and explore the wide world of food. Campers will also engage their senses in our traveling exhibit, Julia Child: A Recipe for Life, with all of the sights, scents, and sounds of Julia’s kitchen. Bon appétit!
