Maine Discovery Museum camps offer the perfect combination of play and learning. Fun and play and having time and space to be, well, kids, combined with special STEM labs and explorations and creative art and building activities: that’s what Maine Discovery Museum camps are all about!


Our campers spend the day thinking and tinkering, wondering and exploring, playing, and making friends.


MDM camps help kids develop important social skills, gain independence and confidence, and grow and share skills and knowledge!

February Camp announcements soon!

We can’t wait to see your children and provide them with much-needed S.T.E.A.M. discoveries. This vacation camp is being offered to our friends, ages 5-10. We will reach out to families individually following registration to ensure everyone is prepared for an awesome camp experience. 

Camp will run each day from 9 AM – 4 PM

  • Drop off is between 8:30 AM – 9 AM 

  • Pick-up is between 3:30 PM – 4 PM

The cost per day is $50.00 per child.


• All museum staff will be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 prior to the start of camp;

• All camp attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination, and

• Well-fitting face masks must be worn by all campers and staff;

• Camps will consist of two cohorts of 15 or fewer children with dedicated staff. Cohorts will remain together throughout the day, every day.

Camp staff will ensure:

  • At least 3 feet between all campers within a cohort

  • At least 6 feet between cohorts

  • At least 6 feet while eating and drinking, including among individuals within the same cohort

Children must stay home if sick or have symptoms of COVID-19. If a camper develops a fever or shows any symptoms of COVID-19 they will be isolated and parents will be contacted to immediately retrieve their child. 

Should an entire cohort of campers need to quarantine:

  • MDM will provide home activity kits

  • Unfortunately, we are unable to provide refunds if a camp has to quarantine. Families and campers are expected to do their part to keep everyone safe this summer.
