Bloomsburg Children's Museum Announces 2022 Summer Camps  

The Bloomsburg Children's Museum is getting ready for warmer weather with the release of its Summer Camp line-up. The camps serve students of all ages and emphasizes creative arts and STEM themes.  For 2022, the Museum has partnered with the Bloomsburg YMCA to offer before and after care to Museum campers. 

Museum Director Dr. Ginny Weibel said the camps are filling up fast. "We are scrambling to find extra space and times we can offer additional sessions. Our Maker Camp filled within 6 hours of us posting it online," Weibel said. "Even if the camps are full, sign up for the wait list. You will be the first contacted when we add additional sessions."


 

We are happy to announce that this year the Bloomsburg Children's Museum will be partnering with the Bloomsburg YMCA to offer before and after camp care to our campers.
