@ChildMuseumATL offers Summer Camps in June and July

Kids of all ages and interests can experience Adventure Camp, Discovery Science Camp, Imaginator Theatre Camp and Dream. Design. Build. Camp 

School may be almost out for summer break, but the learning never stops at The Children’s Museum of Atlanta! This summer, the Museum is offering general day camps as well as four special summer camps during June and July to foster creativity and challenge children to experiment with new ways to play. From creating an original theatrical production to improving flexibility with basic yoga or even getting down and dirty to paint an artistic masterpiece, children of all ages and interests can keep their minds active outside of the classroom – all while having fun!

 “Learning shouldn’t stop with the start of summer break,” said Jane Turner, executive director of The Children’s Museum of Atlanta. “We offer a variety of opportunities for continued learning at The Museum through summer camps and special programs for children of all ages. Participants can enjoy all of the interactive activities offered with our featured camps and still receive full access to the great exhibits on our Museum floor.”

 The Museum’s camps are led by professionals whose goal is to guide children to use their imaginations to their greatest potential. All summer camps at The Children’s Museum feature playground fun at Centennial Olympic Park, a walking field trip, playtime in The Museum’s various exhibits and Fun Fridays (or Thrilling Thursdays) with a pizza party and time to get a little wet and wild in the Centennial Olympic Park fountains. The 2014 summer camps featured in June and July include Adventure Camp, Discovery Science Camp, Imaginator Theater Camp and Dream. Design. Build. Camp. Registration for these camps ends one day prior to the start date or when the camp is full. To claim a spot, visit http://bit.ly/1srkCi2.
