Our Mission

DISCOVERY ADVENTURE CAMP provides a stimulating environment in which campers can learn and practice new skills allowing them to develop physically and academically. In our safe and supportive community, campers learn to respect individual differences, develop a sense of belonging, and feel valued for who they are. We provide a nurturing setting for children to participate in creative learning and recreational activities that facilitate the joy of discovery.
