The Virginia Discovery Museum is a resource for all children of our community. Children learn best in an inclusive environment where our differences are celebrated. As it has done for the past three decades, VDM will continue to serve the interests, needs and abilities of children of all backgrounds. We are committed to enabling our community's youngest members to play and learn together in a joyful, safe, and loving environment.

Spring Break Camp

< Back to Programs

School may be out, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Whether your child is new to the camp experience or already knows the ropes, the Virginia Discovery Museum’s annual week-long, half-day Spring Break Camp for children 4 and older offers kids opportunities to gain confidence, make friends, and explore STEAM-focused topics through creative and engaging hands-on experiences. The camp theme changes every year, and campers enjoy a special play time in the galleries each morning before the Museum opens.
