Fun and Leaning for Kids at Day Camps
Duluth Children's Museum Offers Hands on Experience for Kids on Spring Break
DULUTH, Minn. – Kids get to have a lot of fun and learn all about science this week at the Duluth Children’s Museum.
The annual April Day Camps give kids a chance to engage in hands on learning like making slime and exploring an ore boat and other museum exhibits.
Each day camp has its own theme like science, gardening, and space camp.
“When they come here, they’re making oobleck and they’re learning the science behind it and they’re hitting those standards but in a way that they don’t feel like they’re learning,” says Cameron Bloom Kruger, President and CEO of the Duluth Children’s Museum. “It’s not a classroom, it’s an opportunity for them to play and learn at the same time.”
“The best way for kids to learn is through play, and so all of our opportunities are based around play and hands on and when they have those kids of opportunities, its stimulates their brain.”
The Duluth Children’s Museum is still trying to fill all their summer camps which run from June through August.
