The Whaling Museum & Education Center Summer Camps

The Whaling Museum & Education Center in Cold Spring Harbor offers a variety of fun, educational, week-long summer camps at the museum! Each camp runs from 9am-1pm (snack included, bring lunch!) with an optional 8:30am early drop off.

The camps are structured around artifact sharing, museum scavenger hunts, experiment stations, story time, culminating take-home crafts and outside free play (weather permitting). Each camper goes home with a daily list of “Ask Me Abouts” so parents can engage with their child on the topic of that day’s camp.
Each camp is limited to 25 campers and closes when capacity is reached. The museum offers discounts to members and early-bird pricing.

More details can be found on their camp page: HERE
