Museum of Nature and Science Spring Break Camps 2017

Treasure hunters wanted! The museums invite 1st through 5th grade students to join us on a treasure hunt adventure across the Las Cruces museums. Each participant will explore the museums in a hands-on experience about treasure hunting. Follow the clues to reveal the museums’ hidden treasure chest, and learn what it means to be a treasure hunter.

Become a Forensic Scientist at the museums with our second camp open to 6th to 8th grade youth. Participants will go on an adventure to solve a mystery at the museums. Join us as we learn how to collect and analyze evidence found at a mock crime scene and discover the truth behind the mystery. This camp includes opportunities to meet local law enforcement including local Police Officers, Crime Scene Investigators, Border Patrol, and members of the Fire Department.
