Thursday, August 30, 2012

Creative Discovery Museum’s 2012 Fall Break Camp invites children in Kindergarten through 5th grade to explore the great outdoors in Fall Break Camp: Outdoor Adventurers. This camp, offered Oct. 8-12 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m., will provide a unique experience encouraging active games and science activities inside and outside of the Museum.

Campers will play active games outdoors and explore the Museum indoors, as they participate in a wide variety of arts and crafts projects. From cooking to box sledding and focused art activities, children will love learning about what is in their own backyard. The week will conclude with a field trip to Renaissance Park and the Chattanooga Arboretum and Nature Center.

“We plan activities that are fun for kids of all ages around topics that are timely and enjoyable,” said Lynne Mulligan, senior programs manager. “Campers will enjoy forming relationships with other kids and explore the surrounding parks of Chattanooga.”

Reservations are required for Fall Break Camp: Outdoor Adventurers. Contact the Reservations Department by calling Nancy at 648-6045 or Beth at 648-6040. The cost for this camp is $160 for members and $195 for non-members.
