Get ready to have the best summer ever at The Franklin Institute! Experience the most hands-on, educational, iconic science summer camp in the Philadelphia area.

Whether your child is a Mini Molecule (grades K-2) just discovering the wonders of science, an Awesome Atom (grades 3-6) ready to sink their hands into new and interesting discoveries, or an Excited Electron (grades 7-9) all set to be challenged to create their own science projects—Discovery Camp is sure to foster collaboration, curiosity, and creativity in EVERY child. 

Summer camp activities include museum exploration, theater shows, science projects, games, workshops, presentations by local scientists—all wrapped around dynamic weekly themes!

Tips for parents:

Did you know? Summer camp runs until 4:00pm, a full hour longer than many of the other summer camps in the Philadelphia region.

NEW! This summer, each of the six themes is offered twice, giving families an extra opportunity to book (or return for) these must-experience topics!
