ImagineU, the children’s museum near downtown Visalia, will offer seven weeks of fun, interactive learning this summer.

Half-day and full-day camps run Monday through Friday, beginning June 5, with activities designed for children ages 5 and up and lunch for all campers. Each week offers a field trip, to be determined, projects to take home, and a theme for the curriculum: 

• June 5: “Big world, tiny spaces” is a life sciences theme, with children learning about the five senses, a plant’s life and nature gone wild. 

• June 12: “The secret life of animals” lets children explore rainforest and ocean animals, farm and desert animals, with a field trip to a local dairy.

• June 19: “Scrap shop” allows children to explore the creation of craft quilts, patterns and patchwork. The campers’ creations will be donated to critically ill children through Children’s Hospital.

• June 26: “On with the show” is all about performance art, with theater games, do-it-yourself musical instruments, artsy poems, interpretive dance and painting. 

• July 10: “Gadgets and science” features robotics, Lego engineering kits, cubelets, mad science and space exploration.

• July 17: “Big paws, big feet” tackles large animals, such as sea animals and dinosaurs. 

• July 24: “Liquid fun” explores the water cycle, clouds, filters and aquifers and salt water.

Full-day sessions run from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.; half-day sessions run from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Costs vary depending upon schedule selected, and museum members receive a 10 percent discount.

“Our mission is to inspire children through interactive and fun educational experiences and summer camp gives us the opportunity to meet that mission, in a very profound way,” noted museum director Peter Sodhy. “Children can choose the themes that intrigue them and spend a week immersing themselves in it. We are very excited about our curriculum for this summer.”

ImagineU is located at 210 N. Tipton St., Visalia. For information, call 733-5975 or visit
