Discovery Camp is branching out!
We are excited to announce a partnership with Valley Forge National Historical Park, which will provide Discovery Camp with a special opportunity to take the program beyond the walls of the museum.
Discovery Camp at Valley Forge will explore the rich history and natural science of Valley Forge. We will utilize the park's wide range of natural and cultural resources to provide a new depth of science learning. Children will be outdoors for a good part of each day, hiking, observing and discovering all Valley Forge has to offer! Curriculum will be a collaboration between the National Parks Service's "Junior Ranger" program and Discovery Camp at The Franklin Institute favorites.
This unique camp experience will take place at Valley Forge National Historical Park* and is offered to campers entering grades 3-8.
