Discovery programs are for girls and boys aged 8-12. In Discovery, campers gain some independence as they get to choose the four activities in which they participate each day. They may also choose to go on off-site Adventure Tours. Discovery programs are available for both overnight and day campers.
Campers will have the opportunity to sign up for a selection of activities that are held during the four daily activity periods. They can choose either Recreational or Instructional Activities. Recreational Activities are included in the program fee and emphasize having fun and trying a new activity or skill. They are generally one hour in length and can be taken as often as possible. An example of a recreational activity is zip line.
Some Instructional Activities are included in the general fee, and some have an additional cost. Instructional Activities emphasize learning a skill through formal instruction. They are generally one hour per day for the entire week. For example, campers can work on skill development in rock climbing or canoeing, or will work throughout the week on a multi-step arts and crafts project.
