Keeping Campers Safe:
Discovery Camp features a safety-first approach to protect the safety of our campers and staff. As such, group sizes are limited to just 12 campers accompanied by a minimum of two staff at all times. In addition, sanitation of program equipment and materials will be maintained and instruction will take place exclusively outdoors. The program will follow current guidelines regarding items such as health screenings, face coverings and social distancing. Our policies, procedures and schedule are subject to change depending upon guidance from local, state and/or federal agencies.
