Program details
The Henry Ford offers amazing camp experiences. Discovery Camp® is our history-based camp for children going into the 2nd through 9th grades. Each level has its own theme and related crafts and activities.

All camps are based in Henry Ford Academy® classrooms in Henry Ford Museum® and Greenfield Village®, where campers will enjoy upgraded amenities, including air-conditioning, while still being immersed in the museum and village atmosphere. To ensure high-quality experiences, staff-to-camper ratio will not exceed 1:8.

Each camp runs 9am - 4pm daily with extended care available before and after camp. Camp days are packed with activities, including special tours, rides and plenty of fun!

An afternoon snack is provided. A Discovery Camp T-shirt will be distributed to each camper at the end of their first day of camp. The T-shirt should be worn the remainder of the week. Additional T-shirts may be purchased in advance if desired. See the registration form for details.

Each weeklong camp is offered several weeks throughout the summer.

Celebrity moms stole the spotlight, with Reese Witherspoon showing off her growing bump in brilliant blue and new mom Aishwarya Rai hitting the red carpet and facing her critics in a glamorous Elie Saab gown. Along the way we also saw Heidi Klum, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Connelly and more. And we can forget Jane Fonda, who made 74 years old look pretty damn good in her stunning sequined dress..
