EdVenture is a 501c3 Registered Non-Profit educational institution dedicated to creating new generations of lifelong learners through museum experiences, programming and camps. Helping shape a new generation of people who love to learn is at the core of all we do. In fact, our mission is to inspire children, youth and the adults who care about them to experience the joy of learning as individuals, as families and as a community.
A Place Promoting Play
While EdVenture is known as the perfect venue for families to come to have a great time together, we are proud to be a place that promotes the power of play. When children and their adult caregivers engage in activities throughout the museum, the experience serves as an opportunity to learn and grow.
Play is the central ingredient in how children learn. There is no greater gift that can be shared with a child than the chance to play. Play promotes learning as children develop social skills, imagination, communication, cooperation, creativity, reasoning, memory, and the list goes on. When children play at EdVenture, they role play as fire fighters, grocers, farmers, chefs, astronauts, and a host of community helpers, as they learn so much about their world. When children play at EdVenture they are creating experiences that last a lifetime.
Building a Stronger Connection - We’re on a mission to make EdVenture experiences accessible to all children. With you by our side, we know it’s possible to impact lives by inspiring the joy of learning.
On November 8, 2003, EdVenture opened its doors— and its heart— to the children and families of South Carolina. We have since expanded into two other South Carolina communities. EdVenture Hartsville, presented by the Byerly Foundation, opened its doors in 2018 and EdVenture Myrtle Beach opened its doors in 2019.
