Summer Camp 2016

Give your child a summer of adventure and discovery!


Fernbank Museum’s summer day camps consist of week-long sessions for rising Kindergarten through 5th grade students. Educators will guide campers on an exploration of the scientific world: paleontology, forest ecology, zoology and more. A low counselor-to-camper ratio ensures your child’s safety while providing a unique one-on-one learning experience.

Don’t miss this opportunity for your child to experience a fun-filled week of activities, crafts, games and more that can only be found at Fernbank Museum. Registration is on a space-available basis and will sell out quickly.*
