Teacher Workday Camps
School may be out, but that doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! Throughout the school year, the Virginia Discovery Museum offers Day-Off Camps when Albemarle County and Charlottesville public schools close for Teacher Workdays. These half-day camps for children 4 to 8 focus on science, technology, engineering, art, and math enrichment through interactive games, hands-on crafts, and collaborative challenges. Plus, campers will enjoy a special play time in the galleries each morning before the Museum opens.
Emergency Release Form
An Emergency Release Form must be completed for all campers prior to participating in their first camp. If you have already filled out an emergency release form for a previous Museum camp or program, please call (434) 977-1025 x104 or check-in at the front desk during drop-off to review and update your information as needed.
