Case Western Reserve University again is partnering with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History to provide children’s programs during an upcoming school holiday.

The “Explore the Museum” camp will be held Monday, Sept. 10, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Several schools in Northeast Ohio close on this date, and the natural history museum offered a similar program on this holiday last year with great success. The committee and museum also have partnered for programs for President’s Day and children’s spring breaks.

The program is open to children in kindergarten through sixth grade, and will include lessons about geology, chemistry and dinosaurs. Children also will see a live animal program and a planetarium show. There also will be take-home crafts and hands-on activities throughout the day.

The cost for the one-day camp is $50 per child; registration information can be found on the museum’s website.

One of the offerings launched through the President’s Committee on Child Care Options, this camp is among those offerings for which the president’s office provides financial assistance to families with household incomes of $50,000 or less. Those with questions about financial assistance and their eligibility can contact Human Resources Manager Amy Sheldon at or 216.368.5000.

The university continues to offer two other committee recommendations, launching programs for temporary and back-up child care and funding for child care related to professional travel.
