Summer Camps at MY Museum 2017

Posted on March 21st, 2017 by MYMuseum

Children ages 6-8 are invited to explore what makes Monterey special by spending a week at the local children's museum during My Museum's 2017 Summer Camp! Campers will play and experiment with unique hands-on exhibits, discover new friendships, and explore hidden treasures in our community. Each day offers a new adventure focused on learning through play.

There will be three sessions: June 12-16, June 26-30, and July 27-August 4. Each day we'll meet 9am-4pm. Fee is $265 per child for MY Museum members; $280 per child for non-members. Space is limited - register today by phoning the museum at 831-649-6444.

Small is sew beautiful! Bella's Studio has moved to a slightly smaller space - we're still located in the same building, 140 W. Franklin Street, but we're now on the third floor in Suite 309.

The idea that bigger is better certainly proved false for us. This new, smaller studio feels cozy and is remarkably efficient. In our new spot we continue to offer sewing and craft workshops, private sewing lessons, and open studio time with our Baby Lock sewing machines, and we still have a retail boutique selling a collection of contemporary fabrics, sewing notions, and handmade gift items. We invite you to visit us at our new home!
