We look forward to welcoming our friends back to the museum for an epic summer of exploration, growth, creation, and play. We’re working to provide a safe, in-person learning experience for all of our campers in 2023.

Berkshire Museum camps offer children going into grades Pre-K through 8 the chance to make connections between art, science, and history in the Museum’s new classrooms and throughout our galleries. Campers develop skills, create art, conduct experiments, and make new friends, all while having a ton of fun!

Half-day camp: $200 ($175 members) per camp per week

Full-day camp: $400 ($350 members) per camp per week

Registration includes a $50 non-refundable administrative fee. Partial refunds (minus the administrative fee) are available for cancellations up to four weeks prior to the first day of camp. No refunds will be given for cancellations within four weeks of the first day of camp. Campers should be entering the indicated camp grade in September 2023.
