Camp Discovery 2016 Underwater at Ocean Beach 

Updated -3/17/2017

Program Overview

Camp Discovery is a day camp program designed to meet the needs of working parents while providing a fun filled day for children. Campers will participate in swim lessons,sports, games, arts & crafts, and free swim. Campers will also have the option of taking a tennis lesson.Special events and field trips take place weekly.

Campers will be split into two groups, the Explorers will be children who have completed Kindergarten-2nd grade and the Trailblazers will be children who have completed grades 3-6. Both programs meet at Glastonbury High School in the Art Wing and campers will see each other throughout the day but field trips and activities will differ. This is not a drop in program and campers should plan on being there for the entire day.
