Spring Break 2020: Electrifying Experimentation!

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.
