Boys, Grades 2-8
Spark your son's curiosity and interest for the fascinating world of science! Discovery Science Camp is a science teacher-led activity and excursion camp at The Heights School, an independent school for boys with a conveniently located and beautiful 29-acre wooded campus in Potomac, MD.
Discovery Science Camp is a program designed around uniquely engaging activities and hands-on experiences involving science. For the past 20 years, this longest running camp at the school has been staffed exclusively by The Heights School's faculty - and it accomplishes more adventure in a few weeks than most camps offer in an entire summer.
