The Grand Rapids Public Museum (GRPM) just announced the return of Snowflake Break camps for kids in 1st through 6th grade to enjoy fun and engaging themed programs focused around science, history and culture during school breaks this holiday season.
For two weeks campers will use the Museum as a learning lab – experimenting, learning and growing – all while having a great time in one of the area’s most history-rich and cool environments. They will explore their creativity through design challenges in Dream it, Build it LEGO® Bricks, explore cultures from around the world through artifact investigation in Holidays Across the Globe, uncover connections between plants, animals and environments around West Michigan in Zoology Adventures and more.
“We are looking forward to welcoming another year of Snowflake Break campers to the Museum, using primary source artifact learning and exhibit exploration for a fun and educational experience,” said Rob Schuitema, the GRPM’s Director of Public Programs. “These camps are a great way to dive deeper into science, history and culture concepts through the unique lens of the Museum.”
Snowflake Break camps will take place Monday through Thursday, from December 20 through December 30, 2021, with session options from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or 1:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Camps will be limited to 16 registrants per session, and are $40 per child, with a reduced rate of $30 per child for GRPM members. Campers will be provided with supplies for each activity. Various safety measures will be in place to ensure a low-risk environment for learners and educators.
