Family Discovery Camps are coming to the Florida Museum! Explore the natural world with scientists and Museum staff in this outdoor experience for the whole family. Discover how scientists work in the field and learn how to use the tools of science yourself.

Camps are designed for children finishing grades K-6 and accompanying adults. Each week’s two-hour session will cover a different museum-based topic and includes outdoor exploration of the University of Florida Natural Area Teaching Laboratory. Camps are outdoors so wear appropriate footwear and clothes that can get dirty or wet!

Pre-registration is required. Registration for each camp closes the Thursday before.
