Summer is a time of growth and discovery, and summer camps are the source of countless enriching and memorable experiences for children. At the Yale Peabody Museum, summer camp provides the opportunity to learn about natural and cultural history in a relaxed setting, through fun and engaging hands-on experiences. The Museum’s world-class collections and exhibits serve as a truly unique backdrop to each week’s program. While some camps focus on a specific topic or set of skills, others are broad surveys of everything the Peabody has to offer!
We ran our first two camps in 2004 and now offer 12 different camp programs. We plan a healthy mix of interactive learning activities, field trips, creative arts and play, with at least some time spent outside each day. Our staff is trained to create an environment that is both physically and emotionally safe, and one in which the experience of every child is important.
Please note that some of our camps will fill by late winter, and most will be full by the end of spring, so don’t hesitate to register or contact us if you are interested. We sincerely hope we can provide your child with opportunities to grow and discover, and experiences to remember fondly for the rest of his or her life.
A limited number of full and partial need-based scholarships are available. To be eligible, those seeking scholarships must apply by May 5, 2013 (you will be asked to submit copies of your family’s most recent tax documents). Other restrictions apply.
At a minimum, the Program Registration Form and a $100 deposit are required to reserve a space for your child in one of our summer programs. If your child’s registration is canceled two months before the start of camp, a full refund will be issued. If the registration is canceled less than two months before the start, the refund of the deposit is subject to our ability to fill your child’s space.
