Museum Adventure Weeks center on the creative exploration of the Everhart Museum collection and the Nay Aug Park environment. Each week, campers are invited to experience a new topic or theme that uses both art and science in its hands-on, multi-modal approach to learning. Instructors will use visual thinking strategies and inquiry-based learning to talk about art and art objects from around the globe.

This summer, the Everhart will offer two unique options for young museum explorers, Adventures in the Museum and Adventures at Home.

Kai is a curious nine-year-old who loves to read books about history and mystery. Kai’s aunt Lani is an archaeologist who travels the world on archaeological digs. While aunt Lani is home for the summer, a dig site is discovered miles away, just outside of town! Although Kai isn’t allowed on the dig site, aunt Lani gives Kai a magical toolkit and clues to investigate on her own. Through her curiosity and exploration, Kai discovers there might be more than meets the eye and unearths an incredible surprise! This week, campers will learn about women in science, identifying rocks and minerals, fossils, and ancient artifacts through hands-on projects and discussions.
