Natural History Museum of Utah
The summer months at NHMU are busy with kids of all ages taking advantage of the wealth of knowledge available at the museum. Half day options for the younger campers and full day options are available for the older kiddos. Each week covers another topic and several weeks are partner camps with Red Butte Garden next door. Little scientists will be thrilled to spend their summer next to fossils and minerals. See the weeks still available according to age groups HERE.
IJ & Jeanné Wagner Jewish Community Center
If you have real little ones, Camp K'Ton Ton is one of the few options for the 2-5 age group. Their focus is on providing a nurturing environment for the littlest members of your family. They also have full day camps for older kids in their Bernie Camp. The JCC has one of the best pools and prime location for your summer adventures. You must become a member to take advantage of these great programs so click the links above for more information.
Are your kids needing some more artistic ventures this summer? Maybe you want them to learn a bit of Spanish? Do they love going to Seven Peaks? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then Arte Primero is for you. Marla and her dedicated staff have been running a bilingual art camp for several years in Sugarhouse and my girls have personally enjoyed their summers because of this program. They spend several afternoons at Seven Peaks during the week, so make sure you stock up on sunscreen! More information and registration form can be found HERE.
