SUMMER CAMP IN A BOX

It’s summer camp fun from home with BRAND NEW Summer Camp in a Box kits!

Explore and develop an appreciation for nature and cultures from around the world. Using STEAM concepts as building blocks, kids are encouraged in hands-on, play-based learning that connects them creatively and intellectually with both new and familiar topics. Each of the four boxes focuses on a different aspect to connect you and your child with the Museum collections.  Make sure to take photos and tag us on social media so we can see your creations!

*** Please note, these boxes are new and different than the Summer Camp in a Box offered in July.  A limited number of July Camp in in Box kits are available for purchase in the Kenosha Public Museum gift shop.  ***
