Camps & Classes
The Bay Area Discovery Museum offers Discovery Camps throughout the year, as well as multi-part classes for child and caregiver on various topics. Our camps and classes provide child-directed, inquiry driven learning through project-based, hands-on activities designed to boost creativity, STEM skills, and critical thinking.
Summer Discovery Camps
Campers will have a blast with two weeks of robust programming that provides the perfect blend of BADM's exhibits and the surrounding National Park, Fort Baker.
Curious and Capable
Curious and Capable is a baby playgroup at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. This eight-week series is a chance for parents/caregivers and babies to build a community of other families while sharing in fun, child-directed play.
Spring Break Camps
Spring into new discoveries and curiosities. One week spring break sessions are packed with new friends and new discoveries. Designed for 4 - 6 years olds.
Discover Together is BADM’s toddler and parent exploration program. Join other families to explore new materials and engage in creative activities in an age-appropriate environment that reflects the approach of BADM’s on-site preschool.
