JULY 13-17, 9 A.M. - 4 P.M.

AGES: 9-11

Remember those instant cameras? Or dark rooms and rolls of film? This week takes a peek at cameras through the ages. Learn about the beginnings of photography, shoot some manual photos, learn about developing images, take away some photographing techniques, and even open a lens on the digital age. You’ll definitely want to take a shot on this camp!

Sick and Cancellation Policy

The Hunter Museum works to provide a safe and healthy environment for all our visitors. We believe children prefer to be home in a comfortable environment when they are not feeling well. A general rule to follow is that if your child has a fever or is too sick to go to school, they are too sick to visit the Museum. If your child is ill or recuperating from an illness, we ask that you postpone your child’s participation in Hunter Museum classes until he or she is able to return to all normal activities. If your child becomes ill while in a class or camp, we will call you to pick him or her up as soon as possible.


-          Once your registration for a camp or class is complete, your registration is non-refundable. Only exchanges to other camps or classes will be permissible. Exceptions to this policy include cases of extreme illness or emergency.

-          Class and program dates are subject to change. The Hunter Museum reserves the right to cancel classes and programs when necessary. Under these circumstances, fees will be refunded to registered participants.
