Campers will begin and end each day at the Discovery Center. This five-day Urban Xplorer camp will be a mix of outdoor skills and nature art. Campers will get to practice archery, make fish print t-shirts, learn about ecosystems, discover backyard wildlife, hike, and so much more. Transportation to all off-site field trips will be provided.

Each day, please make sure campers are at the Discovery Center on time to check in.

Parents/Guardians must be prompt in picking up children no later than 5:30 p.m. Contact numbers are very important in cases of emergency or behavioral issues. We must be able to reach an adult who would be able to come immediately if needed. Make sure your child has a non-perishable lunch and water bottle each day for camp. Children will be outside and should dress appropriately for weather and outdoor activities.
