Summer Camp at the EarlyWorks Museums will be a half day program where campers will learn by blending science and history with hands-on activities. Each day the camp will utilize the EarlyWorks Children’s Museum and Alabama Constitution Hall Park to engage campers in fun, educational topics showing both the historical and scientific principles of learning. Camp fees will include a daily snack, all materials needed for the camp and a special 3D printed name tag made in the Tinker Lab.

Animal Science Camp will allow campers to learn about different types of animals and their habitats while exploring how animals impact our every day lives, past and present.

Urban wildlife- Discover wildlife all around you as you learn how animals adapt to live in urban areas and see how many different types of urban wildlife you can spot around the museum. Campers will be buzzing after learning about the history of bee keeping.

Burrowing wildlife- Dive into the ground as we learn about borrowing animals and how they have adapted to live underground, then learn about root cellars at CHP and create a burrowing habitat diorama. Campers will meet EarlyWorks very own burrowing friend, Merp.

Arboreal wildlife- Trees don’t just provide oxygen and shade, they also provide habitats to many different types of wildlife. Explore life in the trees and create an arboreal diorama.

Domesticated animals- Humans started domesticating animals more than 10,000 years ago. Learn how both humans and animals have adapted to live with each other. Learn what animals would have commonly been found in Alabama homes in the 1800’s and enjoy outdoor games from that time.
