Summer Camp at the Children’s Museum of Tacoma honors and nurtures your child’s curiosity, creativity, and imagination! Different themes throughout the summer appeal to a child’s individual interest, igniting their spark and building community. We design our camps as collaborative learning experiences for age groups including 2-3 years old, 3-6 years old, and 5-8 years old.
