Camp Discovery 2020

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. Special events and field trips take place weekly.

Campers are split into three age groups, the Explorers are children who have completed Kindergarten-1st grade, Pathfinders are children who have completed grades 2-3 and the Trailblazers are children who have completed grades 4-6. All programs meet at the same location, 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.

New Location for 2020 - Campers will still receive swim lesson and will be bused to the pool.  We will unfortunately not be able to offer tennis lessons this year.  Please read the Parent's Handbook for complete information.
