Event description

Description

Help your child’s natural curiosity soar this Spring Break by signing them up to be a detective for the United States Marshals Museum. Working in teams, children in 1st through 6th grade, will investigate who has been stealing artifacts from the Museum’s collection using STEM-related activities. They’ll start by identifying the evidence left behind at the crime scene and then analyze it to see if they can figure out who the perpetrator is.

Their roles will then reverse and they’ll become the suspect trying to break into a locked box alongside their team of campers. They must think and communicate together as to how to crack into their box of loot, helping them build relationships and fine-tune their problem solving skills. There will be multiple tasks that need to be completed in order to accomplish their goal including mathematics, puzzle solving, reasoning, and cooperation.

This year, a grant from the William Thomas and May Pitman Hennessy Foundation is helping to reduce the cost for the Spring Break Day Camps. Tickets are $30 for one child to attend one 9:00a-3:00p camp. A limited number of scholarships are available on a first come, first served basis.

Spring Break Day Camps will host a different age range each day as follows:

Tuesday, March 19: Grades 1 and 2

Wednesday, March 20: Grades 3 and 4

Thursday, March 21: Grades 5 and 6

Each day camp is limited to 30 students. A notebook, lunch and snacks will be provided. Pre- and post-care will be available by request. Costs are $10 for pre-care (8:00 – 9:00 a.m.) and/or $10 for post-care (3:00-4:00 p.m.). Pre- and post-care is available for campers only.

To register your child, please visit our Eventbrite page. You can also visit our USMM website or social media platforms which will have a link to the page posted.

A registration form, FAQ sheet, and camp itenary will be sent to you following camp registration.The registration forms should be returned by March 15.
