Summer Camp Update

With current health and safety guidelines in mind we have made the decision to cancel our traditional summer camp offerings. All those who have registered for summer camps will be contacted by The Works. Refunds may be issued to guests who have registered for any paid programs or events that did not occur due to our unexpected shutdown. Alternatively, we can issue a gift card with credit for a future program, event or gift shop purchase at The Works. For those who would like to support The Works during this challenging time, in lieu of a refund, we would gratefully accept the program registration fees as a donation. Please feel free to contact us with registration questions.

We are working to create and provide Works @ Home offerings to inspire you and your child to explore and discover with us this summer! Look for new opportunities to explore History, Art, and Technology over the next few weeks.

We will continue to keep you posted on the status of future programs based on public health recommendations. We will contact registered participants directly and the information will be shared through our other communication channels. Thank you for your patience and support.
