Summer Camp

The National WWII Museum offers an array of summer camp opportunities for kids.

Using the history of World War II as a jumping-off point, campers have the chance to engage in fun, creative activities that will ignite their imaginations! Whether your camper enjoys creative expression, scientific pursuits, or the art of deception—or perhaps all three—The National WWII Museum offers a variety of options for summer-time learning and exploration.


Summer Camp Update

As we continue to actively monitor and remain responsive to the COVID-19 restrictions put in place by local authorities for the health and safety of campers and camp staff, The National WWII Museum will be moving forward with the STEM Innovation Camp, Spy Camp, and Bob & Dolores Hope Theater Camp as an interactive distance learning experience for campers. As we bring the camp experience home to you, families will be able to choose either an activity boxes that include supplies and worksheets, or a digital only option for each of our three camps this summer. Registration for summer camp will open April 5 for members and April 12 for nonmembers.

What will camp be like this summer?

This year our program will be multi-faceted to engage your child(ren) and address various learning styles. Your child will be mailed an activity supply kit to accompany their experience of camp from home. This will contain materials for hands-on activities, instructions, and worksheets that will correspond with videos available through our Google Classroom – accessible online anytime during the week of camp. We will also be hosting optional “Camp Office Hours” where your child can check in and engage with Camp Staff and other campers for additional time together. They can ask questions, learn something from a special guest, or socialize with other campers!
