Summer Wonder Camp 2017

June 12, 2017-August 11, 2017


Our Philosophy

At the Children's Museum of Sonoma County, we believe summer is meant for fun, exploration & discovery. Summer camps should be full of immersive, hands-on activities and learning opportunities that encourage children to challenge themselves and mix learning with joy and play.

Summer Camp 2017

This summer, Wonder Camp is a perfect thematic mix of art and science projects along with terrific group activities geared for 5 -8 year olds. Campers experience a variety of different activities ranging from art, science, construction, music, drama, and more. Each day of camp is tailored to what inspires campers individually! On selected weeks, campers may also experience interactive demonstrations led by guest instructors from the Santa Rosa Junior College or visit Snoopy's Home Ice and the Charles M. Schulz Museum to add to the wonder and amusement.

At the end of each week parents and caregivers are invited to an open house, performance, or art show. Weekly emailed summaries of activities keep parents and caregivers in the loop as well.

Sign up for one week or more – each week is a different mix guaranteed to delight and inspire your young scientist, engineer, pirate, explorer, or artist.

Structure

Each camp has a 2:7 (at most) ratio of adults to children. Our camps are facilitated by teachers, early childhood education professionals, and individuals with experience teaching camps. 

Each camp group remains the same through the week, and will do the same activities. The only difference between the two groups is who they are in the camp with. If you would like to be in the same camp as a friend, please make sure you check with your friend and register for the same camp - we cannot guarantee any switching during the week.
