MuseumCamp is an annual professional development event hosted by the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History (MAH). Each year we bring together diverse, passionate people for a sleep-away camp for adults where we learn together through active, creative workshops and activities.

The 2017 MuseumCamp theme is CHANGEMAKERS. We will spend 2.5 days together exploring the ways we make change in our work, our communities, and the world. We will focus specifically on how we can use creative projects as catalysts for community action and change.

This MuseumCamp will be challenging–but not in a frenetic, obstacle course way. It will challenge us to confront our fears about change, empower others, and create the future we seek.

If you are attending this year, you can download the full program (PDF) now.



Please note that MuseumCamp is an “all in” experience. We ask all campers to commit themselves totally to MuseumCamp while here. Days start early and can end quite late. We ask you to check your devices at the door. To eat, play, stretch, learn, and grow together. There will be alone time, too — space you make for yourself to reflect on the experience as it’s happening.
