Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register for a Discovery Day?

You can register online or by emailing or calling us.

Do you take any field trips during Discovery Day?

Yes! If we take a field trip, then the field trip's cost is included in the tuition. We've gone to art and science museums, zoos, and many other places in Kansas.

What's a typical day like?

If the weather is nice, we will play both inside and outside of the museum. We always have activities and games prepared, plus plenty of free playtime as well. Some days we may also go on an exciting field trip within or surrounding Manhattan!

​Do you provide snacks or lunch?

Our campers will be given a healthy snack each day. We do not provide lunch. We ask that they come with a good pair of walking shoes, lunch, and a water bottle.

What are the hours? Can I drop off my child later or pick them up earlier?

​Discovery Day is from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. If we take a field trip, we usually leave around 9:30 am and return around 4:00 pm. Let us know if you have special drop-off or pick-up needs outside of these hours.

What's the minimum age my child must be to attend?

Your child must be at least six years old and have completed kindergarten.
