Western Explorers Summer Camp


Western Explorers Summer Camp, June 19 – July 28, offers opportunities to learn, play, and create at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Led by experienced teachers, each week-long, small-group session features age-appropriate themes, crafts, games, art projects, snacks, and stories. Campers explore the Museum’s collections, exhibitions, gardens, and trails, which inspires their imaginations and provides the foundation for fun-filled, creative self-expression. All supplies are included in the children’s sessions. Find engaging daytime and evening activities just for grown-ups too! Half-day and full-day sessions offered every week, with extended before and after camp options.
