The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in Dubuque will offer modified day camps for elementary youth during winter break; December 28-31, 2020. This year's camps have been modified to accommodate new health and safety standards and limited class sizes.

Themes for 2020 include:

  • Grossology: A hands-on experience exploring the ooey, gooey, slimy and gross side of science and nature.
  • Critter Connections: Uncovering why animals talk, squawk, sing and convey a range of behaviors.
  • The Ultimate Hunt: An all-day scavenger hunt throughout the museum that includes trivia challenges and special tasks.
  • "Otter” This World: A look at all things North American River Otter related.

Camps are $60 each and discounts are available for members as well as those registering for all four sessions. Camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and wrap-around care is provided at a small additional charge.  Participants must bring a sack lunch.
