Camp Discovery is a fun and educational adventure for students 7-12 years old every single day!

Campers are sure to love it!

The cost is $225 per week for member registrant, $275 per week for non-member registrant. After care will be an additional cost of $50 per week per camper from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Space is limited to 15 campers per week.
