Mini-Camps

Mini Camps are a shorter version of Amazeum week-long camps but with the same level of fun and adventures! Explore a new theme during each Mini Camp. There are two exciting ways to participate in a Mini Camp- at the Amazeum and in your community! 

Mini Camps @ Amazeum

3D Bone Lab 
February 17, 2020 
9am-4pm
Ages: 6-8 and 9-11
$70 Amazeum members/$80 non members 

This camp is going to be t-rex-ific! Join us, young paleontologists, as we transform the Amazeum into a bone lab! Don't miss out on a roaring good time! 

The 6-8 year old campers will explore specially made dig sites, get up close and personal with real fossils, and make our own 3D dinosaur bone.

The 9-11 year old campers will transform our Tinkering Hub into a 3D bone lab where they'll become paleontologists, preparing a dig site, record findings and learn the ins and outs of 3D printing to re-imagine life in the past. 

Pre-registration and payment are required.

Mini Camps in Your Community

We are excited to offer new camps at various locations in NWA! These offsite camps will foster new curiosities and discoveries about the world around us as we use science as a tool for exploring that world. In these child drop-off camps, campers explore the concepts of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) through creative, hands-on explorations. Advanced registration and payment required. 

Fort-ress of Amaze-itude
January 20, 2020
9am-3pm
Ages: 6-8
$60 Amazeum members/$70 non members
Location:  Jones Center, 922 E Emma Ave, Springdale, AR 72764

Fort like you've never forted before! In addition to the tricks up our sleeves, we'll use engineering, real tools, and a bit of imagination to take fort building to the next level. 

Pre-registration and payment are required. Click here to register. 

Chopped: Fort Edition 
January 20, 2020
9am-3pm
Ages: 9-11
$60 Amazeum members/$70 non members
Location:  Jones Center, 922 E Emma Ave, Springdale, AR 72764

Blanket forts are great, but what if there are no blankets? This camp puts your creativity and inventiveness to the test. Just like a chopped challenge, not only will you have unconventional materials to work with, you also have to overcome twists and turns we throw at you along the way. Can you overcome all the obstacles to create an amazing fort?
