It’s not every day that that you get a behind-the-scenes view of BYU’s four campus museums.
This June, BYU will hold its Museum Day Camp for youth between the ages of 13-16 to help teens with an interest in museums, museum careers, art, paleontology, anthropology, or biology broaden their horizons and expand their creativity and skills. The camp will guide youth through the curation, collection and research, and education and outreach processes involved in the museum world.
Organized by the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, the camp looks to offer youth a taste of what it’s like to work in a museum (while having lots of fun in the process). Throughout the week, participants will also work on an exhibit of their own to share with their friends and family members on the last day of camp!
Museum Day Camp has two session that will be held June 11–14 and June 18–21. Camp will run from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. each day and lunch and snacks will be provided. Spots are limited to foster a high-participation experience, so make sure you sign up ASAP.
