Camps & Classes – Bay Area Discovery Museum

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.

2020 Summer Camp Update

Due to the Bay Area COVID-19 public health guidelines, BADM will not be conducting camps this summer. We made this decision based on a variety of factors, including our commitment to the safety of our campers, their families, and the museum staff. We share in your disappointment--the BADM camp staff was looking forward to welcoming your smiling faces to the museum and camp.

All registered campers are eligible for a full refund and should have received an email communication from us. If you are registered for camp and did not receive an email or have questions about the refund process, please connect with us at

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to BADM as soon as we can. In the meantime, please check out our Bringing BADM to You series, filled with videos, activities, and tips for keeping your child engaged in creative, STEM-inspired projects throughout the summer.
