Toddlers up to age three discover the world in Museum Babies camp. Campers completing kindergarten through sixth grade can choose from a variety of full-day camps.
Whether they are building a forest shelter, training like an astronaut, or making an exploding volcano, campers make exciting and unforgettable discoveries. All of our camps encourage children to create once-in-a-lifetime memories they will never forget!

Camper Hygiene and Safety
In response to COVID-19, we have new safety protocols in place for DMNH Summer Camps.
The Delaware Museum of Natural History has put in place new procedures to ensure that campers and camp staff follow the guidelines from the CDC, State of Delaware, Department of Public Health, and the American Camp Association.
DMNH camp staff will ensure that campers can maintain social distancing whenever possible, including inside and outside of the Museum. Individual camps will stay separate throughout the camp day.
Each camp will have their own designated space inside the Museum that is closed to the general public during camp.
Each camper will receive their own designated space in their camp room (their “field station”)and a personal “field station kit.” The kit will contain supplies for the camper to use throughout the week, reducing the need to share supplies.
DMNH asks that each camper bring a face mask to camp each day. DMNH will have disposable masks available as needed. Camp staff will wear face masks at all times during camp. Campers will be asked to wear masks when they are not able to maintain social distancing.
DMNH galleries and camp spaces, supplies, and surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected multiple times a day. Cleaning and disinfecting supplies will be available at all times in all camp areas. Camp staff will review and practice all cleaning procedures with the campers throughout camp.
