Discovery Day Camp    

Discovery Day Camp offers your child the summer experience of a lifetime for children ages 5 - 14! 

Our camp is designed to perpetuate a multitude of skills including leadership, socialization, team-building, sportsmanship, and problem solving. Campers are given the chance to make friends and lifelong memories, while becoming more well-rounded individuals. We promote a healthy lifestyle, giving campers the opportunity for physical activity, fresh air, and lots of fun and new activities to do! 

Campers can look forward to fun and safe activities such as games, songs, team sports, arts and crafts, hiking, and more!   There’s no better place to be than DDC.
