Camp-In is the ultimate museum adventure that your children (ages 7 and older) will remember for years to come. Their overnight stay at the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum begins on Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. and continues until 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning. Each Camp-In provides an enrichment workshop that gives your young “camper” an in depth look at a particular subject.
Camp-In can be scheduled during the school year, Fridays from September through April. Some dates are subject to black outs. Please have two possible dates when you make your reservations.
Camp-In themes can be chosen from the following:
Grades 1-6 — 60-90 Minutes
Learn about planets, stars and constellations and then enjoy an exciting planetarium show.
Grades 1-6 — 45-60 Minutes
Students will learn about chemical and physical reactions through experiments and then have a session of hands-on experiments. This program is held in a classroom setting and can be messy.
All ages — 30-45 Minutes
Learn about some interesting insects at the museum. What is a bug? Why are they important? Students will be able to touch a few of the insect specimens. Look through a pair of glasses to see like a bee. Create your own bug craft.
Fun with Physics
All Ages — 60 Minutes
Discover the wonders of physics with hands-on activities including building towers with newspapers and creating the perfect paper flying object.
We look forward to creating an incredible Camp-In experience for your students!
