Teacher Workday Camps

School may be out, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Throughout the school year, the Virginia Discovery Museum offers Day-Off Camps when Albemarle County and Charlottesville public schools close for Teacher Workdays. These half-day camps for children 4 and older focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math enrichment through interactive games, hands-on crafts, and collaborative challenges. Plus, campers will enjoy a special play time in the galleries each morning before the Museum opens.
