Spring Break Campology at the Discovery Center | Kids Out and About Nashville

Spring Break Campology at the Discovery Center

When school is out, camp is in! CAMPOLOGY at the Discovery Center incorporates fun, hands-on, inquiry-based learning into all of our camps. Campers are divided into different age groups – each with their own Camp Counselor and age-appropriate lessons packed with hands-on games and activities designed to help campers learn, socialize, and have fun! Each camp offers an opportunity for exploration of museum exhibits and free play outdoors, weather permitting.


Theme: A Good Book  |  March 25-29

All of our STEAM activities this week will be based on our favorite children’s books!

March 25: Iggy Peck, Architect


Become an amazing architect, just like Iggy Peck! Learn about a few of Iggy’s favorite buildings, what makes them wonderful, and even make your own! This day will be packed full of fun architect challenges.

March 26: Beautiful Oops


It’s okay to make a mistake. Beautiful Oops! is all about blunders in art and science that lead to major breakthroughs. Penicillin, the Slinky and pacemakers were all discovered by accident! Campers will use the scientific method to make beautiful art, learn about the art of letting go, and how to embrace anything that comes their way.

March 27: Grimm’s Fairy Tales


Can you build a structure as tall as Rapunzel’s Tower? How could we design a house sturdy enough to withstand the huffing and puffing of a big bad wolf? What could Peter Pan use to fly if he ran out of fairy dust? We will use engineering principles to answer these questions and more.

March 28: The Science of Magic in Harry Potter


Your young witches and wizards have now been sorted into Discovery House! Students will discover the muggle science behind popular wizarding disciplines of Potions, Herbology, the Care of Magical Creatures, and Transfiguration. Campers will also meet Pemberton the Great Horned Owl and create their own magic wands.

March 29: Where the Wild Things Are


Let the Wild Rumpus begin! This week is all about the great outdoors. We are heading outside to learn about Tennessee’s native plants and animals as we hike and wade through Murfree Spring. We’ll spend the day investigating the wild things in our wetlands and meet a few of our own wild things that live here at the Discovery Center.
