Summer Camps!

At Palouse Discovery Science Center (PDSC), we know kids. Our camps are designed to inspire curiosity and creativity and to keep children active and moving throughout the day. We have plenty of room for discovery, both indoors and outdoors. In addition to proper spacing, our campers are each assigned their own locker, workspace and set of supplies for use during camp. We provide a daily snack and ask that campers bring their own refillable water bottle from home.  Camps run Tues-Fri and cost $110 (non member), $100 (member) per child. 

Full scholarships available for families facing a financial barrier to registration. Call Pullman Parks and Recreation to sign up for a scholarship. No income documentation required.
