Discovery Place Nature
Ever wonder how kids can go wild in a fun, safe learning environment?
When school is out, education and adventure are in at Discovery Place Science! Investigate, innovate and create with Spring, Summer or Winter Break Camps. Our full-day 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.
NEW THIS YEAR: Extended Care is now 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.
