An Extended Camp Days option (7:45 a.m. – 5 p.m.) is available during all camp sessions for $40 per child per week.
Camps are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to high demand for camp spaces, all sales are considered final. Once your registration and payment have been processed, an email containing a link to your confirmation packet will be sent to you within 5 business days.
During the camp season, camps that are full will be posted as such on our website. If a camp is full, your registration and payment will not be processed, and you will be contacted promptly so that you can make other arrangements. You will have the option of placing your camper on a wait list.
In collaboration with the University of Houston’s ScienceCamp program, The Health Museum is pleased to offer off-site camps in Clear Lake, Katy, Sugar Land and The Woodlands. Visit the ScienceCamp site to register or for more information.
