Discovery

Welcome to Camp

Our super summer staff are looking forward to guiding your child through an exciting and safe camp experience filled with adventure, fun , new friendships and, of course, Discovery!  Each week your child will play group games, water activities, traditional sports, enjoy arts & crafts, and visit Roosevelt Field and Mindowaskin Park.

What to Bring

A swim suit and towel is needed every morning for recreational swim, except on trip days which are every Thursday.

Dress for Activity!  Shorts, t-shirts, socks and sneakers are best.  No open toed shoes, sandals or Crocs. Please pack sunscreen!  Only the lotion sunscreen is allowed at camp and your child must apply it themselves.  If water activities are planned, an e-mail will be sent out giving the day and time and any additional clothes that are needed.

NUT-FREE LUNCH, SNACKS & WATER! We suggest an older backpack and lunch box to store your non-perishable lunch, extra snacks and refillable plastic water bottle.  Please label ALL belongings, and remember WE ARE A PEANUT & TREE NUT FREE CAMP.
