We make HAPPY CAMPERS here at Lindsay! Our weekly camp programs are designed to captivate, engage and challenge children, ages 4-10. We help them learn about animals, the environment, and have FUN! From digging up dinosaurs to natural explorers, these curriculum-based camps offer children a real chance to learn about science and nature unique to our museum. This year, camp will be held entirely outdoors in the Lindsay Wildlife Experience open-air classroom

For ages 4-10
Schedule: Tuesday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Cost: $100 for members, $125 for non-members.

The first camp session begins on July 7th.
