Get ready for summer at Shelburne Museum! We are welcoming young people back to campus and back to art making with 4-day long summer camp weeks that explore themes of nature, imagination, and creativity!

Summer camps run Tuesday–Friday, 8:30 am–3:00 pm

Safety remains at the forefront of camp; proof of vaccination is required for registration. Shelburne Museum will communicate further COVID-19 guidance prior to the start of camp.

Quilt Camp

June 21–24 | Ages 10-13

Back by popular demand! Want to learn how to quilt or can’t get enough sewing in your day? This camp will explore quilt making techniques and collections at Shelburne Museum while campers create a quilt of their own to take home. No prior sewing is necessary, all abilities welcome!

Nature

July 5–8 | Ages 8-11

Are you inspired by the landscape around you? Together we will create art using natural materials, taking inspiration from the painting styles of French Impressionists, landscape painters and the watercolors of Ogden Pleissner, all while using the grounds as our museum.

Life in Miniature

July 19–22 | Ages 7-10

Join us as we explore life in miniature! Together we will explore how scale plays a vital role in creating miniature artworks. From circus parades to dollhouses and dioramas, Shelburne Museum is celebrating all the little things in our unique collections. Campers will engage in sculptural work, design sets, and learn new art making techniques!

Exploration

August 2–5 | Ages 8-11

All aboard to explore and rediscover the Museum. Campers will explore the collection to create a visual log of our findings. We will design our own exploration equipment, learn cartography techniques, and map routes for future exploration at the Museum!

Imagination

August 16–19 | Ages 7-10

Let your imagination run wild on the campus of Shelburne Museum this summer! From monsters in the lake, to mystical creatures on weathervanes, the Museum is the perfect place to tap into your imagination to see what you can create. In this art-based camp you will explore mixed media art making, create games, and rediscover unique collections.
