Camp Discovery 2022

Registration opens Monday, April 4, for Camp Discovery, a day camp for children who have completed a three- or four-year-old preschool or kindergarten. Children who were homeschooled in 2021-2022 and who are enrolled in Discovery Senior PreK for the fall are also encouraged to enroll in Camp Discovery. Camp Discovery has been a huge hit with students, parents, and with camp leaders.
