Summer Camps

Now – Aug. 2

When school is out, camp is in! CAMPOLOGY at the Discovery Center incorporates fun, hands-on, inquiry-based learning into all of our camps. Campers are divided into different age groups – each with their own Camp Counselor and age-appropriate lessons packed with hands-on games and activities designed to help campers learn, socialize, and have fun! Each camp offers an opportunity for exploration of museum exhibits and free play outdoors, weather permitting. Info & registration»
