Discovery Day Camps

Discovery day camps are held during the summer months of June, July and August and are either a day or week long experience designed for children ages 4-6 and ages 5-9 to attend without an adult. Camps include facilitated investigation and discovery of science, art, health, and of the world around us. Through hands-on activities children will develop important critical thinking and problem solving skills. Learning is fun and when children discover how much fun they can have while learning they will want to learn even more.  Drop-off will begin at 8:30 and pick-up is no later than 4:00pm. All camps are designed and led by Children’s Museum educators.

All summer camps include hands-on, interactive experiences, a camp t-shirt, and daily snack. Bring a packed lunch and drink to enjoy throughout the day.
