Summer Camps at the Desert Museum

Desert Tortoise

To the Desert and Beyond! Our hands-on, minds-on camps will open your eyes to the wonders of the Sonoran Desert Land and Sea. Campers will explore every nook and cranny of the Museum as they use science to make their own desert discoveries, observe live animals up close, create art, make tools from desert plants, hike in the desert and go behind the scenes with animal keepers.

Please check back next year for details of Summer Camps 2020!
