Building a Love of Learning
EdVenture is a 501c3 Registered Non-Profit educational institution dedicated to creating new generations of lifelong learners through museum experiences, programming and camps. Helping shape a new generation of people who love to learn is at the core of all we do. In fact, our mission is to inspire children, youth and the adults who care about them to experience the joy of learning as individuals, as families and as a community.

To inspire children, youth, and the adults who care about them to experience the joy of learning.
Service: We live to make the world better by being kind and respectful, working smart and hard, and putting others' needs first, whenever we can.
Honesty: We tell the truth, treat people fairly, and make things clear.
Innovation: We search relentlessly for new possibilities and celebrate creativity in all of its forms.
Joy: Inspired by the way young children enthusiastically embrace learning, we approach our work with humor, gratitude for all we have, and a refusal to take ourselves too seriously. ???????
