Robotics Camp

Join us on Monday, August 21 through Thursday, August 24 from 9am-12pm for robotics summer camp at the Door County Maritime Museum! During summer camp, students entering 4th through 8th grades will take a deeper dive into the history and practical applications of ROVs and build their own robots in teams. They will get to pilot robots in the waters of Sturgeon Bay to assess the hull of the historic museum tugboat John Purves located behind the museum, and get to video chat with real-world researchers and ROV pilots! 

Price:  We’re offering a voluntary three-tiered camp pricing structure based on the needs of our Door County families to better accommodate all financial situations to make camp more accessible. Your tier pricing choice is confidential and based on the honor system, and does not influence the quality of the camp experience that your child will receive. 

Tier A: $200

Tier A is the actual cost of operating this camp at the Door County Maritime Museum, including long-term wear and tear on the ROV building materials, and those ROV parts that require frequent replacing. If you are able to pay this rate, please do so. Your support allows us to continue offering STEM programming!

Tier B: $120

Tier B is a partially subsidized rate, but more closely represents the basic costs of hosting camp. This includes a few non-reusable program supplies, staff, snacks, and limited maintenance expenses. 

Tier C: $70

Tier C is subsidized to the greatest possible extent. The generous support of the Sarah Shinn Marshall Fund of the Wisconsin PEO Help Fund and the Sturgeon Bay Breakfast Rotary Club, as well as Door County Maritime Museum donors allows us to provide for families whose children would not otherwise be able to attend camp. 
We are committed to avoiding costs as a barrier to participation in Door County Maritime Museum educational programming. If Tiers A-C are outside of your family’s budget, please contact Education Programs Manager, Andrea Stromeyer at to discuss options.
