Look a little closer! Our world is full of opportunities to stimulate your mind and imagination. Explore cultural, natural, and art history through the amazing collections of BYU’s four campus museums at Museum Camp. This interdisciplinary program will broaden your horizons, engage your mind, and challenge your skills and creativity.
Museum Camp is a day camp for youth ages 13–16 who love museums and are interested in having a behind-the-scenes view of what it’s like to work in one. Participants with an interest in museums, museum careers, art, paleontology, anthropology, or biology will especially enjoy this camp. The staff at BYU’s museums will help you take your love of museums to the next level. You will even have a chance to curate your own display and show off your work in an exhibit at the end of the week!
Immerse yourself in a creative community with other students and BYU museum professionals and faculty.
At Museum Camp you will expand your application of:
- Art and creativity
- Writing and English
- Design thinking

Expectations: Participants will be expected to maintain high levels of respect for their peers and teachers, and be open to alternative methods of thinking and working. Participants will also be expected to respect the artifacts, specimens, and artwork.
