Kids Engineer Fun Over Spring Break at DuPage Children's Museum

Keep kids busy and their minds active this spring break by registering them for an engineering-themed day camp at DuPage Children's Museum. Choose from three different options for children ages 5-10, topics ranging from flight to LEGO® pieces. Two-day and five-day sessions are available in the morning or afternoon.

“Spring break camps are the perfect way to keep young minds sharp over the school break,” said Margaret Hanly, Associate Director of Programs at DuPage Children's Museum. “Hands-on fun keeps campers engaged while they learn and practice new concepts.”

Soar away with DuPage Children's Museum’s newest camp, Up, Up & Away! This camp for kids ages 7-10 explores the wonders and fascination of flight. Campers will design, build and test their own aircrafts while studying physics principles that make flight possible. Camp will run from Monday, March 26 – Tuesday, March 27, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. each day. Make sure to register early and save $10. Sign up by February 29 and camp costs $100 for members and $110 for nonmembers. After February 29, fees are $110 for members and $120 for nonmembers.

With access to over 100,000 pieces of LEGO®, Play-Well TEKnologies engineering with LEGO® camps provide children the opportunity to build what they have only dreamed about while completing real engineering challenges. Play-Well TEKnologies will run two camp sessions from Monday, March 26 – Friday, March 30. The first session, for ages 5-6, will run from 9:00 a.m. – Noon. The second session, for ages 7-10, will run from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Each session costs $167 for members and $197 for nonmembers.

Pre-registration is required for all camps. Children do not need an adult partner present to participate. An adult must drop the child off and pick the child up at the room. Registration can be completed online  or by calling the Museum at 630-637-8000 ext. 0.
