Three-Day Camp: GRADES 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 SOLD OUT
Campers will become food scientists and learn how chemistry and biology play a part in the world of food science. They’ll even discover how to create edible juice bubbles, and use chemistry to cook edible slime!
Discovering Dinos with Dana!
December 20-24 (Five-Day Camp)
With Dino Dana, we’ll dig deep into the world of dinosaurs to explore how these amazing creatures moved, ate and lived! Campers will discover how fossils are formed and create their own take-home dino pit!
CSI (CAMP SCENE INVESTIGATION): MODS
December 27-31 (Five-Day Camp)
Campers become detectives when they step into Camp Discovery’s “Camp Scene Investigation” and learn how forensics teams crack the case! They’ll dust for fingerprints and test mystery compounds at the scene of the “crime.”
Skin and Bones
January 11 (One-Day Camp)
Bodies of living animals do some amazing things to stay healthy. Campers will meet animals that shed their skin or even their skeleton to grow and stay clean. Future anthropologists will see the skulls and skeletons of different animals and get a look at their own cells under a microscope!
January 17 (One-Day Camp)
Explorers will discover the wonders of Florida and nature all around us! Campers can look forward to learning about animals and plants that live in the Everglades and investigate why even creepy crawlies play an important role in nature.
February 21 (One-Day Camp)
Calling all space explorers! Travel to MODS for an extraordinary extraterrestrial adventure. Campers will learn about the planets within our solar systems and build a rocket to visit them. Future space travelers will enjoy astronaut food and discover what it takes to survive on other worlds. Traveling exhibit Planet Pioneers, presented by Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, will engage campers with hands-on exploration.
March 18 (One-Day Camp)
Engineers design everything from fans to roller coasters. Campers will test their engineering skills by building bridges out of paper and protecting an egg from an EGG-xtreme drop followed by a visit to our Makerspace to design and create a parachute! The sky’s the limit!
March 21-25 (Five-Day Camp)
Spring into science during our Spring Madness week! Campers will discover how our insect friends play an important role in nature as we release ladybugs into our Science Park and then hop into chemistry while bringing botany into colorful creations to learn about plant anatomy and learn the physics behind make-and-take glow-in-the-dark slime.
Color Me MODS!
March 28 (One-Day Camp)
Join us for a day of colorful, and messy science in the Museum’s colors- yellow, red, white, and blue! Campers will learn about physics while making dizzy works of art in our Spin Art lab and explore the nature of dye while we create our own tie dye Camp Discovery t-shirt.
April 15 (One-Day Camp)
Reduce, Re-Use, Reimagine! Campers will take a journey with us learning about all things GREEN and how we can protect our planet Earth. Planet Warriors can discover the gross science of composting through a yummy lab and then take a tour through the Museum’s new Food Garden!
All About Otters!
May 30 (One-Day Camp)
It’s Otter Time! Join MODS as we celebrate World Otter Day! Campers will engineer their own floating “otter” while exploring the world of otters and get all of their otter questions answered. Zoologists will learn their importance to the ecosystems and meet our own otter ambassadors.
