See the museum as you never have before! Our hands-on, minds-on day camps will open your eyes to the wonders of the Sonoran Desert region. Museum Explorers observe live animals, conduct science experiments, make cool crafts, create art with the Museum's Art Institute, sample desert foods, hike in the desert and more!
Earth Camp opens eyes and minds to our unique, interdependent and awe-inspiring planet, drawing connections from our homes, to our region, to the globe, and to what we can learn about Earth from space. Earth campers work in teams to develop awareness and understanding of our planet's ecosystems and how to better live in harmony with the natural world.
Students learn about the Sonoran Desert ecosystem and current enviornmental issues while hiking, camping, doing field research and exploring our beautiful desert.
