Camps and workshops at the Gilbert House utilize a hands-on, inquiry-based approach. Experienced educators guide all the learning opportunities. Our staff, our methods and our environment create the perfect combination for a fantastic experience. Camps are designed to be fun, creative and original as we highlight the best of what Gilbert House Children’s Museum has to offer.
Founded in 1989, Gilbert House Children’s Museum is named after Salem native, A.C. Gilbert. Gilbert was a scholar, inventor, Olympic athlete and gold medalist, entrepreneur, magician, and so much more. Gilbert’s famous Erector Sets were the inspiration for our giant outdoor Erector Set, the highlight of our 20,000 ft² Outdoor Discovery Area.
