Campology – Day Camps at Discovery Center

All year long when school is out, CAMPOLOGY is in! Our camps at Discovery Center incorporate play and hands-on inquiry-based learning into each and every day. Campers experience STEAM-focused lessons packed with innovative games, projects, and activities, all designed to help kids learn, socialize, and have fun!

Each camp offers an opportunity for exploration of museum exhibits and outdoor play, weather permitting. Throughout the school year, CAMPOLOGY is available during special school holidays, offered as one-day camps, and is also available as week-long day camp sessions during fall and spring breaks. When school’s out for summer, we offer multiple week-long day camp sessions. See below for more details about each of our CAMPOLOGY offerings.

NOTE: In the event of extended closures or cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will refund 100% of any camp registration fees.
