2020 Summer Camp

Voted Best of Las Vegas Gold 2019
- Las Vegas Review-Journal

Bring your curiosity and sense of wonder as you join Museum Educators for fun activities that focus on science, art, and more! There’s something for everyone at DISCOVERY Children’s Museum.

Week-long sessions are offered Monday through Friday from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm for children ages 6 – 8 and children ages 9 – 11.

See the Camp Schedule for details.

Update Regarding COVID-19:
We understand many parents rely on our camps when planning for their families during the summer. That’s why we have been working around the clock under the guidance of the Southern Nevada Health District to offer as many services to as many families that we feel comfortable accommodating in the safest manner possible during this time. This year, that will mean cutting camp sizes in half, in addition to some other health and safety measures listed below.

Enhanced Safety Procedures:
For the health and safety of all our campers, DISCOVERY will be implementing new safety procedures in addition to our enhanced cleaning protocols this year. These include:

– Limiting camps to 10 registrants per session
– Enforcing physical distancing requirements
– Increasing “classroom” sizes to 1,500 square feet
– Hosting camps in what is normally our Traveling Exhibit Hall
– Increasing number of educators to 1 per every 5 children
