Camp Hours

All camps meet from 9 am - 3 pm.

A Before Camp Care option (7:30 am - 9:00 am) is available during all camp sessions for $50 per child per week.  An After Camp Care option (3:00 pm - 5:00 pm) is available for all camp sessions for $75 per child per week.

Admission and Pick Up Times

General camp admissions will begin at 8:30 am. Please note that if you have not signed up your camper for the Before Camp Care option, you will have to wait in the front and will not be able to sign your camper in until 8:30 am.

Campers are expected to be picked up by 3:30 pm. Any pick ups after 3:40 pm will be charged a late pick-up fee.

Camp Registration

Camps are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to high demand for camp spaces, all sales are considered final. During the camp season, camps that are full will be posted as such on our website. If a camp is full, your registration and payment will not be processed, and you will be contacted promptly so that you can make other arrangements. You will have the option of placing your camper on a wait list.

2016 Summer Discovery Camp Scholarships

2016 Summer Discovery Camp scholarships will be awarded based on potential and need for enrichment in an informal learning environment.

Applicants that are awarded a scholarship will be notified of receipt of a scholarship award and will be mailed a METRO Q® Fare Card prior to the start of the camp to get to/from the Museum for the duration of the camp. Scholarships are awarded for the cost of the camp only, and does not include Extended Camp Days. Incomplete applications are not accepted. Please email your scholarship questions to camps@thehealthmuseum.org.

Scholarship applications for the 2016 Summer Discovery Camps will be accepted March 28 through April 29, 2016.


Lunch will not be provided for campers.  Campers are welcome to bring their own lunches.  Afternoon snacks will be provided.
