City Trekker Summer Camp at the new Coral Gables Museum offers eight weeks of fun and educational activities for children ages 5-12, from June 21 through Aug. 13.
The summer camp explores the City of Coral Gables though a variety of disciplines and takes advantage of all the cultural destinations and activities that the City Beautiful has to offer.
Through special presentations, art activities and fieldtrips that will support weekly themes, campers will come to better understand their natural and man-made environments. Campers will learn about architecture, landscape design, art, urban planning, as well as historic and environmental preservation.
The Coral Gables Museum provides a safe place to create, play and learn. Campers will be grouped according to age. Camp will take place Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Early drop-off and late pickup are available. Discounts for multi-week registration are available.
The mission of the Coral Gables Museum is to celebrate the City Beautiful with a focus on architecture, urban design and planning, as well as sustainable development and environmental preservation through education, scholarship and exhibitions. Engaging a variety of partners — schools, universities and professional organizations — through interdisciplinary programming and exhibitions, the museum will provide visitors with skills to better understand the environment, and thereby determine the future of their communities.
