BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A kind of camp at the Boston Children's Museum this spring vacation is making parents sigh in relief.
The program is called "April Adventure Week" at the Children's Museum. The program is designed to let kids aged 5 to 7 years old learn about science in a hands-on, fun way.
Another big bonus is letting parents drop their kids off for an entire day, as the program runs from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM every day.
Melissa Higgins, director of STEAM at the Children's Museum, said that the kids are getting some face-to-face time with their peers, which has been rare over the last year.
"Having kids be able to interact a little bit with peers...and hands on activities, which also is very difficult when you're trying to do classes over zoom, those were two really important things to us when we were planning the week," she said.
The Museum is closed to the public this week, so the kids have free reign over the exhibits.
