Beginning in June, Summer Discovery Camp goers will get to explore science, history, astronomy and more with weekly adventures that are sure to tap into a child’s interests in Summer Discovery Camps. A brand new camp this year is Build It. Campers will get to go behind the scenes into MOSH’s exhibit shop to explore how exhibits come to life as they complete daily woodworking projects and work together on a week-long project.
