Registration is now open for these fabulous summer camps.

Friends' Discovery Camp

July 19 - July 30, 8:30 a.m. to noon

Cost: $130

All kids love Friends’ Discovery Camp! This year there is more to love because Friends’ Discovery Camp is double the fun with 2 WEEKS of fun! Friends Discovery Camp is specifically designed to address the social and recreational needs of children with autism by providing helpful supports while offering kids without autism a unique opportunity to be buddies with a child that may be different from their other friends. The unique camp partnership between Creative Discovery Museum, Siskin Children’s Institute and UTC allows kids aged 7 – 10 (must have completed 1st grade) to have wild and wacky camp fun, develop socially and expand their horizons while enjoying all of the exhibits at Creative Discovery Museum and taking part in fun off-site activities.

Full Day Camps for K-5th grade

These fun-filled camps include time in the Museum, a mid-week field trip, snacks, group projects, and much more. Cost for full day camps is $145 for members and $185 for non-members.
