Virtual Witte Museum Camp

Witte Museum Camp is Going Virtual! 

The COVID-19 pandemic has given us pause to reimagine how to deliver the Witte Museum’s Summer Camps for 2020. We strive to provide our campers with a safe and transformative experience that encourages lifelong learning. After careful consideration, we have decided to temporarily suspend in-person camps, at least through June, and instead bring Witte Summer Camp to you in an entirely new and exciting way!  

Each camper will receive a Witte Box of Wonders, consisting of all of the needed supplies to participate in the various activities and experiments offered that week, as well as some Witte Museum swag! Each day there will be multiple opportunities to virtually connect with our Witte Museum Camp team members, bringing you the exciting content our campers know and love.  

We will be offering three different Camp themes over 10 weeks on a rotating schedule. Each week will feature unique activities and learning opportunities, so campers that repeat a theme will still experience a fresh and exciting week.  

At the end of the summer, if regulations allow, we will host a Camp Field Day for campers and their families to come to the Witte, connect with one another and participate in fun and silly activities! 

Tour our offerings below, and let the Witte curate your summer!
