Exciting adventures await in our Discovery Camps, all year round!

Discovery Camps are the place to be for kids who love to get hands-on with science! They’ll have a blast exploring topics such as paleontology, chemistry, astronomy, marine biology, and much more in ways that are so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning. Offered over school breaks in summer, fall, winter, and spring, Discovery Camps are taught by trained scientists who use the resources of our Museum to bring science to life in exciting, interactive ways that are sure to inspire!
