Summer Camp

Registration is now open! 

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. Through your camera lens, you'll 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.
