WE CAN’T WAIT TO SHARE CAMP DISCOVERY WITH YOU!
Camp Discovery sits on over 50 acres on Webb Pond in Eastbrook, Maine. Throughout the summer, campers from Kindergarten-7th grade, discover all that the wooded grounds of Camp Discovery have to offer through adventurous programs and encouraging activities.
Campers will start the process of learning self-reliance, build skills in our archery and bb gun program, learn to canoe, paddle board, kayak, go on adventures to catch and release frogs and turtles, and swim in Webb Pond daily. Our fishing program will be expanded this year, encouraging all campers to experience a day on the water. This year we are excited to add basic swimming lessons!
Camp Discovery’s goal is to engage with campers daily keeping them safe while ensuring they are having fun and developing their new skills. Campers will build character and grow while building memories with new friends that they will cherish for life.

Lovingly referred to as CDOG, our organic garden became a heavy focus for Camp Discovery in 2017. Now, campers enjoy their time working in the garden and learning from our Master Gardener volunteers. Each summer CDOG has expanded. CDOG produces hundreds of pounds of produce which we incorporate into our meal program, send home with campers, and donate to local organizations.
ARCHERY & BB GUNS
Frank Butler and Chris Kravitt are both 4H certified shooting instructors; Chris for 20 years and Frank for 15 years. Safety is our biggest priority, and campers are required to follow protocol while in the designated target areas at camp. This includes wearing safety glasses and guards and adhering to safe handling practices.
Campers spend much of their time on beautiful Webb Pond swimming, paddle boarding, canoeing, and fishing. We also have adventures to the small islands in the pond! We offer swimming lessons on Fridays to those who wish to participate. The waterfront is supervised by a certified lifeguard.
The woodshop program introduces campers to hand tools through creative building projects. Projects range from making fishing lures to boxes for cards or keepsakes and more.
