Discovery Day Camp
Designed especially for young campers, Discovery Day Camp introduces younger elementary school-aged children to the camp experience. With themed activities tailored to this age group, children will explore, learn, play and make new friends! Indoor swimming lessons are available for an additional fee. Camp meets rain or shine. Campers should bring their own lunch and refillable water bottle each day.
Due to the evolving situation with COVID-19, camp guidelines may change depending upon the state and CDC recommendations. Staff will communicate these guidelines before the start of camp.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Bob Russo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (847) 428-7131 x1204.
