Camp activities are developed by certified teachers and specialists and change each session so campers can be exposed to new projects throughout the summer.  Typically, activities revolve around the sessions field trips which serve as weekly themes.

"The organization and staff are great.  My kids were especially interested in the science sessions," said one Madison parent. 

"Camp Discovery kept the camp experience fun & exciting. That's what the kids are looking for. They want to learn and experience new things but in a fun, hands-on way. The staff is excellent," she added.

Camp Discovery's Leader in Training Camp offers eighth and nineth graders opportunities to have fun at camp and also have an introduction to leadership skills and topics.  Each day LIT’s have a recreational activity, one or two workshops on leadership skills, and work beside college-age counselors with campers to gain real life leadership experience.

Grades eight and nine also participate in the theater program in developing skits and public speaking skills. Each session the LIT group plans and implements a field day, party or project for the campers. This project allows LITs to try out leadership roles, plan and implement projects, and work together with peers, staff, and campers to accomplish their goals.
