Vacation Week Programs

Drop-In Programs and Table Top Activities

Let the EcoTarium plan the fun this year during school vacation weeks! Drop-in programs and table-top activities on the museum floor are included with general admission.

Enroll in Vacation Week Camp!

Looking for more time to explore? We offer camps where kids (grades 2-6) are immersed in hands-on science and nature activities alongside friends old and new. Each day explores a new camp-wide theme, so you can sign up for a day, or come all week!
