2024 Summer Camps at MOHAI

Each summer, MOHAI partners with different organizations around Seattle bringing fun camps to kids and youth. Spend summers with MOHAI and go adventuring!

History Hijinks with Seattle Children's Theatre

Mysterious things are afoot at MOHAI! Artifacts aren’t where they should be, and historical information has inexplicably gone missing. Your stellar investigative skills are desperately needed to solve these mysteries. You’ll team up with a MOHAI teacher to combine all of the skills needed to be a top-notch history detective.

When you’re not getting to the bottom of these pressing unsolved mysteries, you’ll read stories, make art, and explore the nooks and crannies of the museum along the way.

With your SCT teaching artist, you will enter an interactive dramatic story that you help create as you act it out.

Examine artifacts closely, travel to far away time periods, and help get the museum back together.
