Imagine a summer of fun activities to do with the kids.

Actually you don’t have to imagine, because Everett’s Imagine Children’s Museum thought up a bunch of kid pleasers, starting with the Fourth of July.

The museum is open special hours, noon to 4 p.m. Wednesday (July 4), with special activities, including making Independence Day hats, and special two-for-one admission. Military families will be admitted free.

Next week, the museum begins a series of multiday and weeklong camps for all ages.

Starting July 9, preschool and kindergarten ages, 3- to 5 year-olds, can be Jammin’ in the Jungle from 9 a.m. to noon. July 23 to 27, the theme is Ooey Gooey Science. They’ll learn all about dinosaurs from Aug. 6 to 10, and head down to the farm Aug. 20 to 24.

The week-long camps are $200 for members and $225 for nonmembers.

Camp Rock Hound, for 7- to 10-year-olds, is set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 16 and 17. It costs $125 for members and $140 nonmembers.

A series of half-day camps for first through fifth grades takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. July 10 and 11 (detective skills required); and on July 17 and 18 (gross science experiments, and lotions and potions).

The half-day camps are $40 and $45.

Registration is required at least two days before the camp or until the camp is filled. Call 425-258-1006, ext.1012, or email education@imaginecm.org to register.

Imagine Children’s Museum is at 1502 Wall St., Everett. For more about the camps, go to www.imaginecm.org.
