Pioneers
Ages 5-7
Every child looks forward to a summer of fun. At Camp Discovery, Pioneer campers enjoy a summer jam packed with stimulating activities and adventures. Our Pioneers participate in traditional and even some non-traditional camp activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, sports, dramatic arts, nature, gardening, and music. The Camp Discovery experience teaches campers to appreciate diversity, improves their social skills, and helps develop leadership skills while having fun making lasting summer camp memories.

Adventurers
Ages 8-12
Each day, Adventurers explore new things and partner with other campers to forge new friendships. Nature, arts & crafts, sports, games, drama, special events, swimming, boating, and environmental education activities fill a typical camp day. Adventurers build confidence through participation in both individual and cooperative challenges. The group dynamic encourages problem solving as a team to learn the value of cooperation. Hikes through the hilly terrain of our beautiful wooded camp help campers appreciate the outdoors as they learn to read a compass while maneuvering through the woods. Special activities such as Color Wars, talent shows and cookouts add to the magic of camp.

Leaders in Training
Ages 13-15
What better way to keep teens active than enrolling them in a Leaders In Training program where they will learn important life skills, including the skills needed to become future camp counselors. L.I.T.s spend most of their day shadowing our camp counselors, learning to mentor and provide assistance to young campers, but there is also plenty of time for them to build positive relationships with their peers. L.I.T.s participate in activities that focus on personal growth, build self-confidence, and encourage team work.
