CMC Discovery Camp




CMC Discovery Camp - Virtual


The Children's Museum of Cleveland (CMC) is excited to host our Discovery Camp series this June! With the current stay-at-home order in place, and with health and safety in mind, we are converting this year's summer camps into an online model. 


For each camp, a kit of activity materials, supplies, and a camp manual will be provided by CMC. Daily live video sessions will be hosted with CMC educators to guide your child through the lesson: one 20-30 minute session at 9:30am, and a second 20-30 minute session at 2pm. Children will be able to fully complete crafts and activities on their own, but may need some guidance from an older sibling or adult depending on their age and ability. Each camper will need access to an Internet-connected device (phone, tablet, or laptop) to connect into the daily camp video chats.


Virtual campers will receive a supply kit for the camp(s) they are attending. Materials can be picked up at the Children's Museum and loaded into your car by a staff member. CMC staff are also able to hand-deliver kits to families within a 15 mile radius of the Museum (**see below for list of cities included in delivery range.)


All camps are designed for kids ages 4-6.
