It's the Not-So-Haunted House that is oh-so-fun! Kids of all ages are invited to dress in their most "boo-tiful" Halloween costumes and have a ghoulishly good time trick-or-treating at The Magic House and getting autographs from their favorite storybook characters.
NOTE: Registrations are currently on hold for these programs. Laumeier offers one-week themed Summer Art Camps in half-day morning sessions for ages 4 to 6 and full-day sessions for ages 6-12. Participants learn about art in a camp setting with field day activities; weekly pool visits; gallery exhibition excursions; and treks through the Park and woodland trails. Campers (divided into groups by age) develop their artistic abilities using a variety of art media and processes including drawing, painting, sculpting and more, while learning about art conservation and history, inspiring new ideas to create their very own masterpiece. Help your child find their inner artist through a week immersed in art and nature!
Kids and teens ages 8-15 can learn the basics of using a potter's wheel to make functional clay pieces and non-functional sculptures in Clay Class: Wheel Throwing at Laumeier Sculpture Park. They'll study the fundamental techniques of wedging, centering and raising cylindrical forms such as bowls, cups and vases.

This is not a trick or treating event.
