VMNH to offer winter break science adventure

The Virginia Museum of Natural History is kicking-off the new year by offering a special winter break adventure for children ages 6 to 11 this January.

On Jan. 2 and 3, Winter Break Science Camp will offer young learners the chance to spend each day at the museum participating in winter and holiday themed science activities, such as making snow and conducting science experiments with candy. Campers will even enjoy popcorn and a movie each day.

“Winter Break Science Camp is designed to give children a fun, unique learning experience as they begin the transition from a long holiday break back to school,” said Debbi Bryant, camp coordinator. “All that campers need to bring with them is a bagged lunch, a bottle of water, and their sense of adventure.”

Since each day will offer different activities, parents can enroll their children for one day or both.

“The camp is designed to be flexible for parents,” said Bryant. “Each day will bring new adventures and the camp is designed to allow parents to pick just one day or both days depending on what works best with their schedules.”

Winter Break Science Camp takes place on Thursday, Jan. 2 and Friday, Jan. 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, with a registration deadline of Thursday, Dec. 26.

The cost of the camp is $30 per camper per day, with special rates available for museum members.

To register, contact the museum at discover@vmnh.virginia.gov or call 276-634-4185.
