Summer is just around the corner and you should start making plans for the kids to stay sharp and learning before the next school year begins. The Discovery Center Summer Camps gives kids a perfect mix of learning and fun! Which is why the DHDC has been voted *BEST DAY CAMP* for 4 years in a row.
Our week-long camps are offered in a variety of great topics and interests to children ages 3 through entering 6th grade. The learning opportunities are rich with updated, science-based curriculum and qualified teachers. Plus each camp is jam-packed with hands-on science activities and experiments, crafts, discovery and FUN!!
