The DoSeum is San Antonio's only museum just for children where kids learn by doing, creating and tinkering, instead of just looking and listening.
The DoSeum’s Holiday Camps are back! Kids will explore exciting new STEM and art concepts, learn to innovate, create, and solve problems—all while having fun!
*The DoSeum does not offer refunds for camps.
Aftercare pricing differences reflect the number of caregivers per child and number of hours of care received.
The DoSeum is proud to offer financial assistance to our qualified families. For more information on scholarships, click here.
As camps sell out, we invite you to join our camp wait list (click below). Sometimes families cancel their registration and in the event seats open, we will reach out to families on the wait list in the order they were received.
Each year, our goal is to expand programming and give as many children and families the opportunity to participate; and we we will look at expansion opportunities next year for these popular summer camp programs.
Thanks again for your interest in The DoSeum Summer Camps.
Light up the night… or day! Did you know you can actually play with light? Has your child ever wondered where shadows come from? In this camp, your child will learn all about light and how to manipulate it. Campers will learn about reflection and refraction by playing with prisms in water and with mirrored paper. We will explore how shadows are made through puppet play and experiment with light boards to discover color mixing through light! Campers will learn how a kaleidoscope operates and even make one to take home!
Did you know the man who invented the TV was only 14 years old when he first sketched the idea? Perhaps your young innovator will design the next big invention. Give them a leg-up with this camp where they will conceive of a problem, then design their very own invention to solve their issue. Campers will learn the design process, testing, improving and problem-solving. At the end of camp, your child will pitch their invention to the class as an intro to public speaking!
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ~ Aesop. This camp is a wonderful way for your child to learn how their kindness towards others can change someone’s day or even life. They will come to understand how positivity and gratitude are infectious and sharing this with others can positively affect their community and perhaps even the world. Campers will make art projects to help bring joy and happiness to others. Your child will leave this camp feeling rewarded and have a better understanding of how showing kindness to others will also have a positive impact on their own self-esteem.
Why are some people extroverted and introverted? What makes you tick? We all know everyone is different, but why exactly? Are you an optimist or a pessimist? In Brain Games! we will explore the psychological and neuroscience concepts that make us unique!
In this Master Camp, the low student to teacher ratio will enable your child to uncover their own individual interests and needs through hands-on learning and exploration. In the end, campers will walk away with a better understanding of themselves—why they act the way they do and feeling confident about what makes them special and unique!
