Museum Youth Camps
The MAC’s camps are based on the philosophy that young people benefit from hands-on learning experiences that combine an appreciation for the arts and science with respect for and understanding of the world around them. It is the mission of our dedicated and experienced staff to promote creative talent, cultivate a sense of wonder, and foster an enthusiasm for exploration of the natural world.
Get Messy Camp for groups is designed for multiple households looking to engage in a “live” virtual creative activity together. The ideal audiences for this program are classroom, family, or community groups. The activity is appropriate for a wide range of ages.
Activity themes are Pop art and printmaking and the program includes a 45-minute “live” virtual session with a MAC educator, an instructional video, printed instructions and project materials. Kit pick-up instructions will be provided upon registration.
Cost: $15 per family, minimum 10 registrations (or 10 families). Two week advanced registration required.
Available Thursday evenings at 6:30 pm
There is no pre-activity or extension activity.
Required for registration: One group leader to register, distribute kits, and show up for a live virtual meeting. The group leader will initiate the Teams meeting and the MAC Educator will join and lead the program. This will simplify the virtual aspect and make sure the meeting invitation comes from a familiar source.
Details will follow via an email confirmation upon registration. Contact the education department with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
