The Secret Society of Adultologists: Summer Camp

Saturday, June 16, 7 – 10 PM

Camp without the counselors? Yep. This edition of The Secret Society of Adultologists will allow you to relive your favorite memories of summer camp, except this time the food is good, the staff is nice, and there is science and beer!

Museum scientists will share rattlesnakes and spiders from our collections. Our rooftop bar will serve specialty cocktails and an exclusive IPA from Thorn Brewing. Activities include Nerf archery, color war, friendship bracelet making, and so much more. Full list of programs and activities below.

Science, craft beer and cocktails, music, storytelling, food, crafts, and art.

The Secret Society of Adultologists is a whole new way to experience The Nat – stay late and rediscover your sense of wonder.

Tickets are $15 for members and $25 for non-members and go on sale May 16 at 10 AM. They include access to all events and activities, and a raffle ticket for a prize drawing. Food and beverage will be available for purchase.

Ticket sales support our collections, exhibitions, environmental education, and of course, our research that has made The Nat an authority in the flora and fauna of our region.
