Cape Cod Museum of Natural History

Instilling a sense of wonder and discovery to last a lifetime.....

KidSummer Natural History Day Programs 2015

We offer a range of programs for ages 3 to 15, encouraging learning and appreciation of the environment through age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities led by education/naturalists.

By focusing on relationships in nature and the inter-related web of life, CCMNH taught about biodiversity long before it became a widely recognized term. KidSummer programs focus on this important concept in age-appropriate ways, emphasizing biology, physiology and ecology. Children will come away with an understanding of the relationships among plants, insects, birds, and mammals.

Our Museum campus is surrounded by a unique outdoor laboratory- 400 acres of conservation land on Cape Cod Bay- that encompasses upland woods, alewife brook, beech forest, salt marsh, barrier dunes, ocean beach and tidal pools. Three trails wind through these habitats and a native wildflower garden. The programs are linked to the MA Science standards, based on STEAM: the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math initiative that encourages creative thinking, hands-on experiments and innovative projects.


KidSummer is sponsored by the International Fund for Animal Welfare .
