History Comes to Life through School Programs and Summer Camps

Providing educational opportunities for the children of Grand County, Utah has long been an important part of the Museum’s work. This spring, the Museum delivered core curriculum-aligned field trip programs to over 350 Helen M. Knight Elementary School children. These trips, designed in collaboration with teachers to complement each grade level’s subject matter, took students to historically significant sites around Grand County for hands-on exploration of history, culture, and science.

This summer, we are busy collaborating with several local organizations to bring elementary-aged students fun, educational summer camp activities both at the Museum and out and about in the community. Through collaborations with the Moab Valley Multicultural Center, Canyonlands Field Institute, and Youth Garden Project summer camp programs, dozens of local youth will be visiting the Museum, taking educational hikes, examining specimens, or working on art projects designed to provide them with an enriched understanding of the Moab area’s stories. Take a look at these great shots from MVMC Canyons & Cultures summer camp!
