Our camp program is designed to provide campers with a variety of activities to help nurture an awareness of their physical surroundings as well as self discovery. Campers spend their days learning new skills while exploring the natural surroundings. While each day has a consistent structure and routine, no day is typical. Activities are structured to promote self esteem and cooperation and designed to challenge our campers both mentally and physically.
Daily activities include boating, swimming, camp games, hiking, sports, fishing, exploring, archery, BB gun target shooting, paddle boarding, environmental education and more. Lunch is provided to all campers every day, free of charge.

Our organic garden became a heavy focus for Camp Discovery in 2017. With help from volunteer Master Gardeners, around 2000 square-feet of fruits, vegetables and greens were planted and cultivated.
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.
