City Trekker Camps are offered during teacher planning days, holidays, spring breaks, and Summer breaks as scheduled on the Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) calendar. Camps take place on weekdays from 9 am – 4 pm, with optional before and after-care for an additional fee. After care is available as early as 8 am and as late as 6 pm to accommodate working parents.
The City Trekker Camp program is dedicated to teaching and exploring the civic arts of architecture, urban design, historical and environmental preservation, and sustainable development through the ARTS. Children ages 5 to 12 learn about the importance of our natural and built environments through related field trips, guest speakers, gallery learning activities, and arts and craft activities. Campers will use the Museum exhibits and the city itself as a classroom. Professional educators, including ecologists, architects, artists, historians and M-DCPS teachers, lead the Museum’s camp activities as developed by the Education department’s director.
