Wonder Camp 2015

Welcome! The Children's Museum of Sonoma County is excited to kick off our summer of Wonder Camp! Join us for five different camps filled with art, science, exploration and imaginative play! We're welcoming children ages 5-10 to Wonder Camps 2015.


Wondering what Wonder Camps are all about? Each week, the Museum offers a themed morning camp with focuses on LEGO Robotics, gadget building, art, and science. Afternoon Adventure camps extend the day so children can explore Mary’s Garden, fish in the miniature Russian River, build forts, harness energy from the sun and help out in the garden beds. Children will leave excited about each day's play and exploration-- and enhance their love of learning. Please feel free to call us directly with questions-- we're here to help!

We cannot wait to see you at camp!

Camp Guidelines

Dropping Off and Picking Up Campers

Campers can be dropped off and picked up at the Main entrance of the Museum. Camp staff will be there to meet you and your children. If you arrive late, please call the camp cell phone. Authorized adults must sign-out children. Please bring a photo ID when you or your child’s caregiver comes for pick up.

What to Wear & Pack

Please send your child in old clothes that you do not mind getting dirty. While we use mostly washable products, stains can still occur. During our camps children play all around the Museum and outdoors, and they can sometimes tear, damage or stain clothes. It is also advisable to send them in layers. Please send children in closed toe shoes. We have a camp packing checklist.

Emergency Care Fee

An additional $1 per minute care fee applies for all children remaining more than five minutes past their registered pick-up time.  If you are going to be late, please call the camp cell phone at to alert camp staff.

Medical Forms

All of the necessary medical information will be supplied by the parent/guardian to the Museum at the time of your registration. You must inform us of any special medical concerns ahead of time. Please contact the Programs Manager, Lauren Hodge, prior to the first day of your child’s camp. Parents of children who require an Epi-pen must supply a form signed by their child’s doctor prior to the first day of camp or we will not be able to allow the Epi-pen at camp.

Lunch & Snack

Your child is expected to bring a lunch if he/she is staying for child care between the morning and afternoon camps. The Museum does not provide lunch for campers staying for child care during the lunch break. We ask that no nuts are packed in camper’s lunches in order to ensure the safety of any child with nut allergies. This includes peanut butter.

We provide a simple nutritious snack during each camp session. Please note that campers with food allergies or sensitivities should bring their own snack.

Toys & Electronics

Please leave electronics, stuffed animals, trading cards and other toys at home. Museum staff is not responsible for ensuring the safety or care of any such items & toys brought to camp often become lost or damaged.
