Discovery Day Camp

More Than Just Something To Do

Discovery Day Camp (DDC) is about learning skills, developing character, making friends with a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. DDC is the true outdoor experience, that allows children to explore what nature has to offer. Rain or shine children engage in hiking, fishing, archery, and many other camp activities. Our summer day camps teach independence, responsibility, environmental respect and the passion for nature in youth ages 5 to 12.
