Galveston Children’s Museum’s summer camps offer science and engineering topics in an atmosphere of inquiry for ages 4-14 years old. Each session presents activities designed to actively engage children and promote wonder, questions, and critical thinking. These camps are not intended to stop at the end of the session, but hopefully will continue to spark continued interest and in the best case scenario, lead to heightening curiosity about our wonderful world.
