Detective Challenge Summer Camp

June 24 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until June 28, 2024


Uncovering clues is a lot of fun, and we’re sure you’ll agree. That’s why we think a detective challenge-themed summer camp sounds perfect! Inspector E&M is on the loose, leaving clues dotted around the museum.

The camp kids (aka detectives) will go on a scavenger hunt to discover the prize at the end. It’ll take the most determined detectives to solve the clues and claim the prize before the timer runs out!

Working to solve mysteries will enhance your summer camp kids’ teamwork skills as well as their logical processing. Now, where did we leave that treasure…?


Museum members receive a $25 discount on all classes.

8:30 AM – Drop-off // 4:00 PM – Pick-up
