UPPER WEST SIDE, NY — With in-person summer camps and typical summer plans put on hold by the coronavirus pandemic, the American Museum of Natural History is stepping up to offer online programs for kids.
The historic museum on the Upper West Side of Manhattan recently launched a wide-range of thought-provoking online summer science camps for children between the second and ninth grade.
The online activities will include virtual hall visits, guest scientist talks, behind-the-scenes tours, and live-animal encounters. Additionally, there will be offline hands-on science projects, games, and crafts.
The camps will take place starting on July 27 and run until Sept. 2, ranging from $175 to $500 in price.
You can sign up for any of the online summer camps on the museum’s website.
