Fall Break Camp Kaleideum 2021
Open for Registration!
Kaleideum is offering one-day camps during school breaks!
Fall Camp Kaleideum will be held at Kaleideum North, 400 W Hanes Mill Road, on the following days:
- Monday, October 25: Spooktacular Science. We’ll have a ghoulishly good time as we create ectoplasmic slime, learn about bats and other creepy crawly creatures, and perform some haunting science experiments.
- November 22: Code & Create presented by the L. David Mounts Foundation. Join us at the intersection of technology, art, and innovation! Make brick creations come to life with LEGO WeDo and experiment with coding and paint to make a one-of-a-kind piece of art created by you … and a ROBOT!
- Tuesday, November 23: Fall Frenzy. Enjoy the outdoors as we explore the science of fall colors. Go on a fun fall scavenger hunt, make your own leaf creatures and experiment with chromatography.
- Wednesday, November 24: Mix It Up. Explore mixtures, solutions and chemical reactions as we prepare concoctions using a pinch of art and a dash of chemistry. Create slimy, fizzy, colorful creations with everyday materials.
Camps are available for school-aged children in grades K-6 and run from 9 am-4 pm. Cost is $40 per day for members; $45 per day for non-members. Before- and after-care are available.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my child need to wear a mask during Camp?

- Staff will wear masks except when eating and drinking or engaging in outdoor activities unless they are not able to maintain a safe physical distance from campers.
- Museum guests wear masks when they are indoors.
What are your sanitation and safety protocols?
Our top priority is the safety and well-being of our campers, guests, staff, and animals. Long before Coronavirus appeared, Kaleideum prioritized keeping the Museums clean and disinfected. We will continue to meet the highest standards of our cleaning protocol, which includes disinfecting our facilities, exhibits, and exhibit props daily with an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant proven to kill COVID-19. Kaleideum staff follow basic hygiene practices, such as frequent handwashing and using alcohol-based sanitizers. Kaleideum staff received training on COVID-19 response through the Workforce Restart program. Campers will learn and practice proper hand washing techniques. There is a sink in each classroom. Kaleideum staff will have their temperature taken and will a answer a series of health questions before they are permitted to begin their shift.
After-Care from 4-5:30 pm
