Montshire building, grounds & trails closed Read More
In the interest of public health, the Montshire’s building, grounds, and trails are temporarily closed until further notice.
After many weeks of closely monitoring the emergent information and public health guidelines, we have made the difficult decision to scale back our plans for camp programs this summer. The health and safety of our campers, visitors, and community remain our top priority.
At this point, we will be canceling many summer camp programs, including all programs that take place June 22nd-July 10th, as well as some additional programs. It is our hope that the situation improves so that we will be able to resume some of our camp schedule in mid-July. We look forward to sharing an update on the status of the remaining camp programs by mid-June.
The following programs are now canceled:
All Preschool programs
All Programs at Crossroads and at the Hanover Site
All Montshire Explorers
All Upper Valley Adventures
All Middle school programs (Aquatic Investigations, Montshire Makers, Mapping the Montshire and Science Stories)
Experiment at Montshire site for the week starting on July 6
Nature’s Detectives at Montshire site for the weeks starting on June 22 and 29
Inventors’ Workshop for the weeks starting on July 6 and July 20
If you have questions or are currently registered for a camp program that may be canceled but have not received an email from the Museum, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For many campers and families, Montshire Summer Camp is an annual tradition, and we so appreciate your participation, support, and commitment to the Montshire Museum of Science, and our programs.
Montshire Summer Camps maintain a low camper-to-instructor ratio (ranging from 4:1 for our preschool program to 6:1 for our camps for older children) ensuring individual attention is given to each camper.
Our college-aged or older staff members are well-trained and knowledgeable, with a variety of interests and experiences, and a love of working with children. Each staff member undergoes extensive training with the Montshire’s full-time science educators, and is proficient in safety and first-aid procedures.
Applications are processed in the order they are received. Programs fill quickly so register early! You will have the opportunity to become a member on the online registration form if you so wish.
A Montshire Camp T-shirt is a special memento of your child’s week at camp.
Shirts may be pre-ordered with your registration for $18.
A limited number of camp T-shirts will be available during the summer in the Museum Store for $23.99 for those who do not pre-order.
With the Extended Care Option, your child may be dropped off at the Museum as early as 8:15am and picked up as late as 5:15pm. This is supervised but unstructured play. Available only for children entering grades 1–8 and enrolled in programs held at the Montshire site.
At the Crossroads site, extended care is included in the registration fee. Drop-off may occur as early as 8am and pick-up must be by 5pm.
No extended option for preschool programs or programs at the Hanover/Ray School site.
Scholarships for Montshire Summer Camp are made possible by donors to the Montshire Auction’s “Fund a Need” program, and donors to the Montshire Fund.
