Summer Camps

Join us for Peabody Museum Summer Camps in Summer 2020!

 

There are many wonderful changes happening in the museum as we prepare for the renovation and expansion of the Peabody including some changes in our Summer Camp offerings. This year we are excited to offer sessions focused on hands-on inquiry using our incredible collections, unique learning opportunities afforded by our Yale University partners, and real-world investigation on our field expeditions. 

 

As of June 30, ALL galleries will be closed to the public. Summer Camp will use Peabody classrooms as our home base and each week will include a mix of classroom-based activities, collections visits, walking field trips to nearby Yale facilities, and bus field trips. 

 

Summer Camps will run from July 6th through August 14th with one-week sessions open to children entering 3rd - 7th grade in the 2020/2021 academic school year.

 

The cost of our 5-day camp session is $340.00 per week for Peabody Museum Members and Yale employees. Non-member pricing is $370.00 per week.

 

Early registration for members will open on Friday, February 28th at 8am

General registration will open on Monday, March 2nd at 8am
