Kids playing at Camp Cayton



Welcome to Camp Cayton! 

Enrollment is now open for Summer Camp 2023

July 10 - August 18


Join us at the Cayton Children's Museum this summer for six week-long camps with a new and adventurous theme each week!

Designed for kids ages 4-8, Camp Cayton offers an immersive and unique full-day camp experience with themed art lessons, creative activities, and free museum play to support your child's development. 

Explore our environment and the planet, go on a safari expedition with animals of the wild, venture into the galaxy, or put on your own theater production—these are just some of the fun and educational themes Camp Cayton has in store for campers this summer. 



  • Camp Cayton runs Monday - Friday from 9AM-3PM. We also offer aftercare from 3-5PM on every day of camp but Friday.  


  • Camp Cayton is facilitated by our program staff and experienced Play Guides. All camp staff have extensive background working in youth and early childhood education, arts education or specialties in relevant fields.


  • To maintain quality instruction, we maintain a 1:10 camper to staff ratio.
