This summer, young explorers can join Field Museum educators from the comfort of your home. Field Explorers Virtual Summer Camp is an online camp for kids ages 7–12. They practice scientific thinking skills while investigating plants, animals, world cultures, and more. Our educators and staff facilitate every camp session to guide campers and their families through a variety of indoor activities and talks with Field scientists.

Choose from one of two five-day-long sessions of Field Explorers Virtual Summer Camp starting on July 27 or August 3. Each day begins at 10am and ends at 2pm, with a break from noon to 1pm. All activities are hosted on Zoom.


Registration opens online in mid-July: $75 for members and $95 for non-members. You can save your spot now by pre-registering. Only one registration is required per household. Just tell us how many campers are participating when you sign up.



We invite all learners to Field Explorers Virtual Summer Camp. To assist with registration costs, we’re offering a discounted registration rate ($30) to households in need.
