Discovery Day Camp

Discovery Day Camp offers your child the summer experience of a lifetime. We provide campers the opportunity for physical activity, fresh air, and lots of fun & new activities every week. DDC campers can look forward to fun and safe activities such as games, songs, team sports, arts & crafts, nature hikes, water games, and more!

Our camp is designed to perpetuate a multitude of skills including leadership, socialization, team-building, sportsmanship, and problem solving. Campers are given the chance to make friends and lifelong memories, while becoming more well-rounded individuals. We promote a healthy lifestyle, giving campers the opportunity for physical activity, fresh air, and lots of fun and new activities to do!
