The health and safety of our campers is always our first priority. The Summer Camps at HMNS program has extensive health and safety procedures and staff training in place every year. This summer, in light of COVID-19, the Summer Camps at HMNS team is updating these procedures extensively, informed by current recommendations from local, state and federal health officials, agencies and authorities, including CDC guidelines. At this time, we are planning to proceed with our summer camps as scheduled, beginning June 1, with extensive health & safety modifications.

Our operational modifications include strongly urging advance online purchase of summer camp, before and after camp, and carpool, lunch and the emailing of completed Camper Health Record forms to summercamp@hmns.org to enable low-touch entry to the museum and communication with the Education Office staff.

Please review our planned modifications for summer camp visiting our Summer Camp Operational Modifications page.


This isn’t your average summer camp. Against the backdrop of real dinosaur fossils, chemistry in action and a world class institution, kids can experience a summer of education and adventure. Geared for kids ages 6 – 12, Summer Camps at HMNS use fun, hands-on learning and distinguished teachers to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists. What will your child discover? 

The week-long day camps at HMNS and HMNS at Sugar Land run from June 1 to August 14 and cover a wide range of topics from physics and coding to paleontology and forensic science.

Registration begins March 23, 2020 for the general public and even sooner for members! Become a member for priority registration access as early as Thursday, February 13.
