Spring Break Camp at the Children’s Museum of Tacoma is a 3-day fusion of artistic inquiry, scientific discovery, and playful learning. Nurturing educators engage children in hands-on experiences within our classroom and exclusive explorations of the Museum’s 5 playscapes.
Creative, messy, unique art experiences await. A plethora of art media, methods, and concepts provide children with endless opportunities to express creativity. Throughout the week, children will explore line, color, form, shape and texture through surprising, engaging, open-ended processes.

Children are naturally curious and eager to discover more about the world we live in. This innate sense of wonder sows the seeds for a creative, stimulating camp filled with hypothesis, experimentation, observation and discovery. STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) concepts allow children to explore the world of science in fun, lively, interactive experiments and artistic projects that activate imagination and help them understand more of the “how and whys” of our amazing universe!
