Project based learning and fun in small groups can be done at The Newark Museum of Art 

The Newark Museum of Art is breaking barriers with in-person camp starting July 5th for kids ages 5-12. The museum is building a wonderful summer camp community with summer learning pods that will consist of small groups of seven children per pod, each with an experienced museum educator. It'll be a wonderful opportunity for students to learn and explore while maintaining a safe environment. Students can develop their skills and interact with students within their pods. With a project based learning approach, you can select among various themes and activities. Engage in one week or choose multiple weeks.
