Summer Camps 2020

June–August, 2020

We have made the difficult decision to cancel all Bell Museum youth camps scheduled for the summer of 2020.

Bell camps provide a fun and enriching environment that encourages campers to explore their scientific passions and discover new interests. We accommodate various learning styles as we explore, create, and experiment with STEAM related activities and exhibits throughout the museum. Led by talented educators, each week at Bell summer camps includes hands-on investigations, planetarium visits, games, creative projects, field trips around the University’s Twin Cities campus, and much more!
