Summer Camps

Discover Your Child’s Summer Adventure

Camps at the Virginia Discovery Museum embody all that summer should be: exploration and fun! As VDM remains closed through at least Aug. 31, 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our staff has transitioned all Summer Camps to a virtual format, and registration is open at a reduced cost from our standard camp rates. Virtual Camps are open to children 4 and older and provide opportunities to explore a range of STEAM-focused topics; gain confidence through engaging, hands-on projects; and interact with other kids in a safe, monitored online setting.
