The program explores connections among the arts, culture nature and science. Each day’s schedule includes studio art, science experiments, summer games, creative expression and visits to one or more of the museum’s 80 galleries. Classes are taught by professional artists and educators that come from a variety of cultural and professional backgrounds. The program’s assistant teachers are graduate-level education students from Montclair State University. The museum’s brochure about Camp Junior Museum is here.
There are five one-week camp sessions left. Each one runs Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fees range from $135 per child per week for Newark residents who are museum members to $185 per week for those living outside the city who are not members. Early drop-off and after-care options are available, but limited, and start at $50 per child per week. Classes are divided into small groups by age.
