Summer at OMCA

Summer Camp at OMCA

Please note: Registration is currently full, but we are taking names for a waitlist. Please email camps@museumca.org to be added to the waitlist.

This summer, explore Oakland with OMCA as your partner! Inspired by Dorothea Lange’s photography, and special exhibition Dorothea Lange: Politics of Seeing, you’ll set out to investigate and document the world around you. Let your creative side shine as you explore the power of photography, zine-making, and screen printing. Get ready to make your own posters, build your own camera, and curate an exhibition. Explore OMCA’s exhibitions, gardens, and the surrounding Lake Merritt neighborhood.

Perfect for ages 8 to 12, OMCA Summer Camps are led by professional Museum educators. Each day will include outdoor exploration and art making activities.

Rates:

$380/week for members
$430/week for nonmembers
$45/week for extended care (4–5 pm)

Limited scholarships available. Request a scholarship. 

Please note that camp fees are non-refundable after May 1.

OMCA Members will receive a discount code in a separate email.
