It’s Not too Late for Summer Camp at Discovery Center

Results from an unofficial poll are in and May officially rivals December as the busiest month for parents, teachers, and museum employees! Are you just waiting until school is out before focusing on your summer plans? Does a weeklong playdate at grandma’s need to be rescheduled? Whatever your reasons, we’ve got the solution. Camp Discovery is a great way for kids to spend the summer engaged and actively learning! Camps are offered for children entering Kindergarten – 5th grade.

Summer camps at Discovery Center begin on Tuesday, May 29 and run through Friday, August 3. The camp day runs from 9:00 am – 4:00, but before and after care is available to accommodate work schedules at just $20 for the week. Weeklong camps are $200 and 4-day camps are $160 which can be offset by a $25 discount if your membership is up-to-date. We’re also adding even more value this year in a new fashion. Both breakfast AND lunch are being provided to campers all summer long courtesy of the CHOW Bus program!  Just click on the dates below to register your little explorer for the best camp in town.

Now that you’re completely impressed and ready for camps to start, we’ve got a little more good news for you. SPARK! Camps have returned for another summer. These great offerings meet the needs of our campers ages 4-5 (not entering Kindergarten next fall) and are offered in full or half-day options. SPARK! Campers can choose from a Rainforest Adventure or Beautiful Oops camp each month. This is a great option for children preparing to enter a preschool or school readiness program for the first time and works well for parents that just need a few days of camp here and there without committing to a full week. Half day options are from 9:00am – 12:30pm at a daily rate of $30 and full day options operate on a 9:00am – 4:00pm schedule at $40 per day. Members receive a $5 discount on each SPARK! daily camp registration.
