Why spend your Spring Break at the Academy?

It’s Convenient!
The camp is located right in Center City. Optional before-and-after care is also available. Each day includes a live presentation by one of the Academy’s teacher-naturalists, an exploration of our exhibits (including Outside In, Butterflies!, and the Big Dig) and "campers-only" games, crafts, and activities. Kids can:

  • Spend the day getting to know dinosaurs, bugs, and live animals.
  • Learn more about the environment with hands-on activities.
  • Perform experiments just like a real scientist.

It’s Flexible!
You can reserve one day or multiple days.

It’s Affordable!
