The Henry Ford
Reinvent summer at The Henry Ford
This experience is canceled for 2021. The execution of this program relies heavily on a large number of our employees as well as outside participants and partners. Because of this and the continued challenges presented by COVID-19, we are unable to host your campers this season. We look forward to providing a revamped camp experience for 2022.
Dreamers, doers, movers and makers are ignited and inspired in a living history adventure packed with hands-on experiments, outdoor exploration, artifact hunts and other adventures exclusive to campers at The Henry Ford. A camp for question-asking, curiosity-driven, day-dreaming kids to dive into America’s innovation laboratory. The Henry Ford Summer Camps are grade-specific programs that open up the pages on the great stories of American innovation, ingenuity and resourcefulness.

Registration and Refunds
Here are some helpful tips to streamline your registration process:
Have the names and contact information of the adults you wish to be contacted in the event of an emergency as well as the names of adults who are authorized to pick up your camper.
Have any prescription name, dosage, and instructions your camper will need as well as the date of their last tetanus shot.
To eliminate as many mailed forms as possible, we’ve added most of our waiver information into the registration process. Please read them carefully.
Look for additional information approximately three weeks prior to the start of camp. This info will contain your parking passes and drop off location for your particular week of camp.
If you need any registration assistance you may call a member of our Guest Services Contact Center, by dialing 313.982.6001.
For your child’s enjoyment, please register him/her for the grade he/she will be entering in the fall. Each program is repeated six times - registering for more than one week’s camp is not recommended. Priority registration for donors and members is March 18, 2020 - March 31, 2020. Open registration begins April 1, 2020. Full refund requests have been extended until May 20, 2020.
