Central Coast children can spend June & July blasting off to the stars, building volcanos or engineering an escape room—all thanks to an action-packed summer camp program developed by the Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum and its community partners.
“Our summer camp program offers a wide range of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math)-inspired activities designed to excite and educate children of all ages,” Operations Coordinator Amy Iliff said.
Children ages 8 to 12 can blast off into space with our Space Explorers camp. Campers will learn about nebulas, black holes, constellations, the solar system and more with activities, games, and art projects underneath the museum’s brand-new state-of-the-art celestial ceiling.
We are offering the Space Explorer camp June 20 to June 24 and again July 11 to July 15 each day from 9 to 12 p.m.
The sky is the limit for children ages 8 to 12 in our Discovery STEAM camp! Join us as we create volcanic eruptions, discover edible science, and imagine new ways to engineer with a team building escape room, marble mazes and more! We are offering the Space Explorer camp June 27 to July 1 and again July 18 to July 22 each day from 9 to 12 p.m.
Family can access the registration form online at smvdiscoverymuseum.org. Camps cost $125 for museum members and $150 for non-members.
Located at 705 S. McClelland St., the Discovery Museum is fun for all ages, with 13,000 square feet of “please touch” exhibits, weekly programs and special events that explore ourselves, our valley, our world and beyond.
