The entire museum campus of Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History is a field for discovery and creativity, where kids investigate Earth, art, dance, science, and more through behind-the-scenes tours, hands-on encounters, and exciting activities. Weeklong half- and full-day camps accommodate children from ages 4 through 13, with additional programs available for preschoolers and high school students. Joint camps combine experiences with Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Mellon School of Architecture, Fallingwater, and Powdermill Nature Reserve.
This summer, some new camps were designed to explore play as the foundation of thinking, making, and experimentation. Several camps included the new Lozziwurm play sculpture located among the trees at the museum's Forbes Avenue entrance, as well as images of artist- and architect-designed playgrounds in the Heinz Architectural Center exhibition The Playground Project.
Summer camps registration is now closed, but check back later for news on next year's camps!
