Now that school is out for summer vacations it’s time to start making plans for summer camps. The San Antonio Children’s Museum is holding several fun and educational camps for children ages 4 to 10. The focus of these camps is to help spark curiosity and encourage imagination in children as they explore the connection between science, art, creativity and discovery.
There are three camp options this year and they run from Monday June 16 through Friday August 22, 2014. For more information or to register for any of these camps visit the San Antonio Children’s Museum online.
