School in Rutherford County maybe out, but CAMPOLOGY at the Discovery Center in Murfreesboro is in!

The camps at Discovery Center incorporate play and hands-on inquiry-based learning into each and every day. Campers experience STEAM-focused lessons packed with innovative games, projects, and activities, all designed to help kids learn, socialize, and have fun!

Each camp offers an opportunity for exploration of museum exhibits and outdoor play.

Now through Aug. 6th, Campology continues with a long list of activities for local youth.
