Discovery Place Nature
Ever wonder how to make every guest a party animal?
When school is out, education and adventure are in at Discovery Place Science! Investigate, innovate and create with full-day Summer Camps for Pre K - Grade 8. Our Camps are led by professional educators and offer a variety of themes to get kids fired up about science, technology, engineering and art.
Camps run 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., with specific activities geared toward the grade level of each group.
OPTIONAL EXTENDED CARE: Extended Care is available from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 - 5:15 p.m. for $75 per week.
I've registered. What's next?
Send in the Emergency Medical & Release Form at least two weeks prior to the start of camp. This form is REQUIRED. Your camper will not be allowed to attend camp until we have a completed form.
Where do I go? What do I do?
Discovery Place Science Camps take place at the Museum located at 301 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28202. We use a carpool drop-off/pick-up system.
