Summer Camps

Spend summers with MOHAI and go adventuring!

Looking to investigate innovation, practice creative writing, or go on seafaring adventures? Each summer, MOHAI partners with different organizations around Seattle bringing fun camps to kids. MOHAI members receive discounts, too!

Registration is open for 2020 summer camps!

Back to the Future: Innovate!

What is innovation and where do new ideas come from? Spend your mornings at the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) where we’ll learn the special skills that help us get creative and think differently. At Pacific Science Center, spend the afternoons exploring solar power, wind energy, bridge design, and how science is shaping the future.

Campers spend the first half of the day at MOHAI and the second half at Pacific Science Center. Drop-off at MOHAI and pick-up at Pacific Science Center.

History Hijinks

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.

*Please note: This camp is sold out. Waiting list registration is available.*
