The Santa Fe Children’s Museum offers many opportunities for children to continue their learning when school is out! Campers are enchanted by our weekly themes and educated through art, science, and play each day!
This jam-packed program includes STEAM activities led by our experienced museum educators, special private playtimes both inside and out, and special community guests!

Sharpen your sword, and your skills, as we build boats, track treasure, curate costumes, and put on our own pirate play!
