Me & My Dollhouse Summer Camp

Experience the world of dolls and dollhouses in a new way!

Spend a week at the Kemerer Museum of Decorative Arts exploring the dollhouse collection of Elizabeth Johnston Prime and learning about decorative arts. Each week-long session is limited to just 15 children ages 7-12.

Stay tuned for details on our virtual camp!

Campers will get up close and personal with the Elizabeth Johnston Prime dollhouse collection, one of the largest in the United States, and then apply what they learned to their very own dollhouse! On the last day parents are welcome for a dollhouse show and tell. All campers will be able to take their finished dollhouse home at the end of the week.
