April Adventure Week

Thirty-seven children aged 5–7 were fortunate to participate in Boston Children’s Museum’s first-ever camp-style drop off program during April vacation week. For many children, it was their first week away from home after a year of isolation, and the entire Museum’s team across departments mobilized to make it happen. The Museum was not open to the public, and the campers were fortunate to experience a full “take-over” of the Museum space—getting meaningful time within each exhibit and launching creations from the second floor onto the Atrium. Campers participated in STEAM activities, games, and activities that encouraged self-expression and teamwork! For many Museum staff, this was the first visitor interaction in six months, and it was a much-needed reminder of the power of the Museum to enrich children’s lives with playful discovery experiences.
