Camp Kindergarten

Camp Kindergarten at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is a free, fun program open to all incoming kindergarten students to get kids ready for school! Children and their caregivers come to the Discovery Center when the facility is normally closed for a special educational playtime and chance to explore a simulated classroom with teachers.

Camp Kindergarten is free but registration is required at https://kansasdiscovery.org/kindergarten/ or (785) 783-8300.

All sessions are Saturdays in June from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.
June 8 – Auburn Washburn 437
June 15 – Topeka Public Schools 501
June 22 – Shawnee Heights 450
June 29 – Seaman 345

* Can’t attend your district day? No problem! You may register for any session, subject to capacity.

Be sure to celebrate the end of the summer at the free Discovery Kindergarten Fair on Saturday, July 28 from 1-4 p.m. at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center.

Camp Kindergarten is offered free with generous support from Together Topeka, Security Benefit, the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library and local school districts. Starting school is a milestone in the life of every child, yet in Shawnee County, more than 1,300 children have not had the opportunity for a formal preschool experience. As part of a community-wide goal of having every child ready for school by the age of five, the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center is inviting incoming kindergarteners alongside parents, caregivers and community organizations that support children and their families as they prepare to launch into school at Discovery Kindergarten.

Planet Party Week: Mars Rover

Explore Mars like a scientist on Thursday, June 27 at 10:30 and 1:30 at the Kansas Children’s Discovery Center. Learn about how scientists and engineers use robotic rovers and other vehicles to explore distant worlds, and experience some of the challenges and teamwork required to navigate a rover across the surface of a planet millions of miles away. Players acting as “Mission Control” and a “Rover” must work together to navigate a large obstacle course. Participants can also design their own rover to fit the particular challenges of exploring a distant planet. Program created by the National Informal STEM Education Network. This astronomical activity is part of Planet Part Week at Discovery Space, a special summer exhibit that invites you to experience out-of-this-world fun!
