During Summer months and during selected school vacation breaks, the Everhart Museum hosts week-long day camps on a variety of topics and for various age groups. Information will be posted as Day Camps are scheduled throughout the calendar year.
Students will spend one week studying plants, birds and other animals that live and grow in urban parks such as Nay Aug. Activities include nature walks, edible plant tours, bird watching and guided tours of the museums natural history collection.
Students will spend one week studying and practicing historic multi-cultural fitness techniques. Activities include yoga, dance, tai chi, hiking, mixed martial arts and inventing indoor health and wellness games.
Students will spend one week exploring the museums cultural collections and learning about cuisines from around the world.
Activities include miniature culinary lessons with special guest chefs, understanding units of measure, making daily life objects (bowls, cups, baskets etc) and creating recipes of their own.
Students will spend one week without technology learning how to live off of the land. So leave the cell phones at home but don’t forget the sunscreen! Activities include visits from local farmers, trips to the Nay Aug Greenhouse, growing your own food, composting, making clothing, canning etc.
Students will challenge their senses by exploring the science and chemistry of taste, smell, touch, sight and sound through a number of activities including extracting flavors from plants, creating unique scents and spending time with professional scientists.
