Discovery Camp

WHERE GREAT THINGS BEGIN!

DISCOVERY CAMP

Discovery Camp is for Grades K - 1.

Discovery Camp is designed for first time campers! This all day camp is geared toward children who have completed or are eligible for Kindergarten. Your camper will be excited about new experiences while having the comfort of a consistent routine. Campers will participate in a variety of arts, crafts and games with weekly adventures to some favorite local spots. We will also participate in Wednesday field trips! Field trips subject to change due to weather and unforeseen circumstances.
