San Antonio Children's Museum announces summer Discovery Camps


This summer, the San Antonio Children's Museum, at 305 E. Houston Street, will again host its Discovery Camps specifically aimed at children ages 4-10.

According to camp organizers, the camps are designed to "spark curiosity and encourage imaginations to run wild as children explore the intersections between science, art, creativity, and discovery."

This year, the museum will offer three new camps for kids:

Sensational Summer! - An exploration of the science and art that make up our five senses. Kids will make musical instruments, design "sound telescopes," uncover how smell affects our taste, and find inspiration with our five senses to create art. Campers will engage in a creative discovery process that will excite and delight their senses!

Amazing Explorations - An amazing camp that allows children to explore land, water, air and even outer space! They are encouraged to navigate using a compass and the stars above, plan a trip in a space ship, and investigate world cultures through both theatre and dance.

LEGO Camp - A LEGO camp that encourages kids to be creative as they build real working machines, tell stories in a LEGO world they design, and create their own entire cities. Even older children will have the chance to build and program their own LEGO robots.

The children's museum is offering a 20 percent discount on summer camps just for KSAT viewers. Visit sakids.org/summercamps then enter the promotional code "KSAT".
