Visit the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum this summer
The San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum (SDCDM) is planning an exciting summer season for families. Now in its second year at the new facility at 320 N. Broadway in Escondido, the museum has a new array of on-site activities, programs, and promotions that make SDCDM a top destination for families all summer long. Locals and visitors alike are encouraged to visit and experience the museum’s wide variety of new attractions starting this June.
Beginning June 1, 2013, the SDCDM will be be open seven days a week (no longer closed on Mondays), and the doors will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day, SDCDM will be offering free admission to all active duty military personnel and their families. SDCDM is also offering free admission to all U.S. Military veterans and their families as a way to say thank you for their service to our country.
Summer Discovery Camp will take place at SDCDM from June 17 through August 16, allowing kids from ages 5-8 opportunities to learn about science, art, and world cultures outside of the classroom. This summer’s themes range from Imagination Creations, where campers explore work from famous artists and discover how creative you can be using different mediums, to Grossology, where campers explore the chemistry, biology, and environmental science behind all things “gross.”
The cost for Discovery Camp is $175 per week for SDCDM members and $250 for non-members. For a full list of Discovery Camp themes and to register visit www.sdcdm.org.
Throughout the summer SDCDM will host a KPBS Kids Workshop from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. which will include engaging hands-on activities for children ages 3 and up to explore the many worlds of favorite childhood characters like Curious George, Cat in the Hat, Clifford and many more.
Workshops and activities will take place at 10:15 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. and will last approximately a half hour to 45 minutes. KPBS Kids Workshop will take place on June 8, July 13 and August 10.
