THE CONCEPT & PROGRAM
Discovery Camp is for boys and girls in Kindergarten through 5th grade who are thrilled by variety and adore everything new. A Discovery Camp day is bursting with Sports, Arts & Crafts, Drama, Music, Gymnastics, Karate, Swimming, Nature, Games, Gardening, Computers, Swing Shot, Rock Climbing, Tennis, and more. Discovery Camp is a warm and encouraging setting of good friends sharing good times. Qualified instructors guide Discovery campers in every activity. There is always something for everyone, and everyone delights in their Discovery Camp adventures!
Swimming is an important part of summer fun! Discovery Camp incorporates a Red Cross program to assure that each child receives quality instruction. Discovery Campers have 2 Daily Swims for fun and learning in one of our 4 outdoor, heated pools. Campers receive a Morning Instructional Swim made up of small group, leveled swimmers. Qualified Red Cross Certified Instructors and counselors facilitate a fun and energetic session to ensure that each child receives quality instruction. Campers will also enjoy an Afternoon Recreational Swim where they can have more fun with their friends and delight in the diving board and double flume slide!
Discovery Camp athletics is a comprehensive program conducted by professional staff in a noncompetitive manner. Instruction is given in all sports at the level of ability of the individual child. Our sports include: Baseball, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer, Lacrosse, Football, Rock Climbing, Swing Shot, European Handball, Archery, Gymnastics, Karate, Tennis, Adventure Challenge, Track & Field, and more.
ART, MUSIC, DRAMA & NATURE
The vigorous day is balanced with art, music, drama, and nature. Our staff instructs in techniques that make each child’s work personally satisfying and encourage and support all campers in bringing their creative ideas to life.
In Art, Discovery Campers use clay, paper, beads, and various other mediums and inspirations to create pieces worthy of any museum!
During Drama, Discovery Campers have the opportunity to perform on stage and tap into their “inner actors and actresses” promoting expression and self-confidence.
Creative Music allows for the expression of every child through song and dance.
Discovery Campers can be found learning about Nature at the Farm and Garden. Horses, sheep, goats, chickens, birds, and bunny rabbits reside alongside our flourishing Garden overflowing with tomatoes, corn, string beans, eggplant and more delicious vegetables ready to be sampled!
Discovery Campers also get to choose their own exciting adventure at the end of the day. Our Specialists offer unique club choices that offer an additional opportunity to gather with friends and staff for even more fun! Clubs can be anything from Yoga in the Garden, Pilo-Polo, Snack-Shack to Animal Care and Hip-Hop Dancing. You never know what extra adventure awaits!
