Kids in Preschool

CMoW Camps

The Children's Museum of Wilmington believes that children learn best through hands-on and creative educational experiences. We provide children with programs and interactive exhibits that emphasize critical thinking skills, STEAM instruction, and hands-on projects in small group sizes.  We offer a wide variety of themed camps led by engaged, qualified educators, to fit and support every child's interests. Our unique layout comprises three beautiful historic buildings, a sensory garden, an interactive water exhibit, and an outdoor area, giving children plenty of kid-friendly spaces to move, learn and play.

In accordance with COVID-19 regulations, we will implement safe, social distancing practices throughout camp. Face coverings will be required for each attendee age 5 and over.
