Events and Camps

 


 
The Neville is excited to offer day camps this summer. Camp is open to kids going into grades 3 through 6. Drop off starts at 8:45am and pick up is at 3:00pm.  We’ll do a number of short activities and games related to our topic, and there will be a lunch break with some free-choice time in the middle of the day. 
 
Registration 

Registration for each Tuesday closes the preceding Wednesday at noon. Registration for museum members is $15 and $20 for non-members; click here to learn how to become a member and save today!  
 
NOTE:  We require a minimum of 5 campers per date. If attendance falls below that level we will transfer your registration to a different date or issue a refund.  
 
COVID Precautions 

Safety is our first concern. Campers and staff are required to wear a mask at all times, and we will be spreading out as much as possible to maintain social distancing. Camps will be limited to 25 campers. Campers with symptoms of illness are asked not to attend that day, and their registration will either be transferred to another date or refunded. 
 
Camps 

Space Zombie Camp (July 13) 
What do a trip to the moon and the zombie apocalypse have in common?  You need a special set of skills to survive both.  In this camp, you’ll learn what it takes for astronauts to make it to space an back, and how to prepare for disasters here at home on earth, no matter what type of “disaster” you might face.

Life in the Past (July 27)
Learn about how life was different or the same for people who lived in our community 100, 1000, or 10,000 years ago. 
 
Engineering Adventures (August 3)
Learn about the importance of recycling and use engineering skills to build “prototypes” for race cars and tools to fight invasive species out of recycled materials.
