Registration Open for Field Museum Summer Camps

Chicago’s Field Museum is offering a variety of summer camp options for students from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, and are designed to foster a love of science and exploration. Additional programs are available for high school students.

Field Explorers Camp (ages 5 to 10): This summer, set young explorers on a journey through the animal kingdom. Field Explorers Camp invites kids to investigate the fascinating ways plants, animals and bugs adapt to survive. Through hands-on activities, campers discover the science of life on Earth.

Tween Camp: Scales, Slimes and Stories! (grades 6 to 8): Take a look into the world of herpetology (reptiles and amphibians) and tell their stories. Partnering with scientists and educators, go behind the scenes in their exhibitions and collections and create a science-based project.

Dino Camp (ages 3 to 4): A Dino Camp and summer day camp for budding paleontologists, accompanied by an adult caregiver. Preschoolers dig for dinosaur bones, learn how to spot a dinosaur, explore exhibits and fossils, and play games.

Cool Down Camp (ages 3 to 4): Stay cool with science this summer in a day camp just for preschoolers and their adult caregivers. Investigate through hands-on science, exhibit exploration and more. Kids bring home tips and tricks to help animals gather the supplies they need for the winter.
