2022 Summer Camps

Summer Camps at BAM invite kids to stretch their imaginations with exceptional programming and enrichment in a safe, fun, and supportive museum environment. Each week campers explore a theme through art, craft, and design. Campers will experiment with materials, tools, techniques, and processes that enhance the communication of ideas through art. Each week culminates with an art display for families and friends to enjoy.  We look forward to welcoming you and your camper!

We will have a limited number of campers able to sign up for our BAM camp due to our COVID-cautious policies. Registration for BAM-hosted camps is open now! Available spots could fill up quickly, so make sure to sign up early.
