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.

Trading Card Trainers

Dec. 20-23

This will be the very best camp; like no camp ever was. To catch your attention is our real quest, to train campers is our cause. Sign your camper up for this 4-day camp week as we dig into the world of your favorite pocket monsters with activities that involve imaginative character development, math skills, and more. (Note: Campers’ personal trading cards are allowed at camp with scheduled times available to play with other campers. Trading of cards is discouraged and will not be monitored by Discovery Center staff. Discovery Center is not liable for lost or traded cards.)


Back to the Basics

Dec. 27-30

Find your balance when we get back to the basic elements at Winter Break Camp. This 4-day camp week will take a look at the four basic elements of nature: Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. Each day will focus on an element’s properties and be coupled with a STEAM project.
