Camps

We are saddened to announce that all 2020 KidsQuest Summer Camps hosted at the museum and Bear Creek are cancelled due to the crisis and social distancing guidelines that would have taken away the hands on learning experiences that are key to a child’s growth and development. This was a very difficult decision and we send our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please check out our HomeQuest page on YouTube for home learning opportunities. 

 

If you have additional questions, please email our Education Department at education@kidsquestmuseum.org


Summer Camps & Spring Break Camps

While we aren’t offering camps this year please keep us in mind for future summer plans. KidsQuest Camps offer fun and learning through science experiments, arts and crafts, collaboration, and exploration! We offer camps at KidsQuest Children’s Museum as well as an outside camp experience located at Bear Creek School’s Valley Campus in Redmond, WA. Stay safe and see you soon!

Please contact the museum if your child has any physical or learning disabilities that we should know about, so we may better accommodate your camper. Scholarships are available.
