Discovery Camps

Museum of Discovery offers a variety of week-long day camps (Discovery Camps) for children ages 6-12 and one-day camps

Discovery Camps: $325 member/$350 non-member per week
For more information, contact Beth Nelsen at 501.214.1122 or bnelsen@museumofdiscovery.org.

No camps the week of July 4th

  • To provide available spots for other families, campers are limited to no more than four weeks within a summer.
  • Campers are to enjoy different themes throughout the summer. Repeating the same theme within a summer is not intended.
  • Clustering campers in groups with similar developmental stages benefits everyone. The simplest and most objective way to accomplish this is by respecting age ranges of camps.
  • Our camps are high energy and can be overstimulating for those with sensory sensitivities. Our camps do follow a fairly predictable routine, so let us know if learning more about our schedule may benefit your camper.
