Still time to sign up for camps at Children’s Museum

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Children’s Museum is looking for young scientists, explorers and investigators for its summer camps, the first of which begins this week.

Animals, ecosystems, fingerprints and DNA will be among topics at the camp.

Junior Explorers, for children entering second through fifth grades, is a week-long camp running Monday through Friday of this week. This camp allows children to explore nature and open their minds to exotic birds of the rainforest, polar bears, penguins and other creatures, according to a press release.

CSI: Camp Science Investigators, also for children second through fifth grades, runs from Aug. 5-9. Children will hunt for clues all over the museum and learn about fingerprints and DNA.

Museum camps, sponsored by Duke Energy, are packed with themed activities, experiments and lessons from all areas of science, according to the press release.

Camps take place Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Each week of camp is $100 for museum members and $110 for non-members.

Children will receive $2 off  the camp fee for every A, B, or O that they earned on their report cards, up to $10 off per child.

A limited number of summer camp scholarships are also available, based on financial need. Scholarships will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
