Look A Little Closer!
Have you ever wondered how museums design their exhibitions? Or where they get all their stuff from and where they store it all?
Discover what’s behind the scenes of BYU’s museums as you work with paleontologists to uncover fossils, see medieval books, and touch ancient artifacts!
BYU Museum Camp
Museum Camp is a day camp for youth ages 11–15 who love museums and are interested in having a behind-the-scenes view of what it’s like to work in one. Participants with interests in museums, museum careers, art, paleontology, anthropology, or biology will love the daily visits to each BYU museum as well as the chance to curate their own exhibit at the end of the week!
Museum Camp is hosted by the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, the Museum of Art, the Bean Life Sciences Museum, the Paleontology Museum, and BYU’s Special Collections.
Basic requirements to participate in BYU Youth Programs:
- Ability to care for your own personal needs
- Ability to be attentive and follow directions
- Ability to act respectfully and appropriately towards others
Because of the immersive nature of this camp, we encourage your youth to leave their phones at home (or leave them with their belongings).
