Summer Creator Camp at METC

 Join us for our new Summer Creator Camp at METC and let your creativity fly! We are offering two weeks of Creator Camps, from 9am-2pm . Each day focuses on a different hands-on, creative craft—paper art, woodworking, photography, pottery, and more.  Attend for a single day or receive a discount for joining us all week. Campers will bring home themed projects each day.  Other daily activities include exploration of our museum, outdoor play, and other craft experiences. Campers must bring their own lunch and snack.
