Summer Camps (Grades K-6)

During Summer months, the Everhart Museum hosts week-long day camps on a variety of topics and for various age groups. This page is updated as camps are scheduled throughout the year. Support for Museum Adventure Week is provided in part by grants from Lackawanna County Arts Engage! and the Maslow Family Foundation.

Museum Adventure Weeks are centered on the creative exploration of the Everhart’s collections and the surrounding Nay Aug Park environment. Each week participants experience a new topic or theme that uses both art and science in its hands-on approach to learning. Experts are scheduled each morning to present on specific weekly themes.

Our 2018 schedule reflects the Museum’s growing interest in STEM to STEAM (, the RISD-led initiative to add Art and Design to the national agenda of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education and research in America. STEM + Art = STEAM. The goal is to foster the true innovation that comes with combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer.
