Summer camp at the Children's Museum of Tacoma honors and nurtures your child's curiosity, creativity, and imagination. Different themes throughout the summer appeal to a child’s individual interest, igniting their spark and building community. We design our camps as collaborative learning experiences for toddlers ages 2-3 years old, preschool learners ages 3-6 years old, and school age learners from 5-8 years old. Snack is provided daily. Camps offered from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. are geared for preschool and school age children who are ready for an engaging five-hour day. Children who attend the 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. camps must bring a sack lunch. With the exception of children ages 2 - 3 years old attending toddler camps, children are expected to be able to use the bathroom with no assistance from adult staff.

If the adult caregiver's intention is to stay the whole week of camp to support their child (i.e. first drop-off experience, medical support, need for 1-on-1 support, etc.) they will need to complete a background check. The cost of background checks vary from $15-25 and parents will be asked to pay this fee.
