Museum Story Camp

What makes a good story?

In parallel with our exhibition Family: Bonds and Belonging, campers will develop their storytelling skills through explorative play-based learning. This camp will engage with different methods of storytelling, from the written word, to photography - even puppetry! Throughout the week, campers will develop creative projects, sneak behind-the-scenes, enjoy an IMAX film, and uncover stories in our exhibitions and on exciting field trips.

We’ve got something for everyone: the budding naturalist, the bookworm, the outdoor adventurer, the improv comic.

Join us on our adventure into the messy, creative, silly world of Story Camp!
