Discovery Camps are tailored for young campers looking for a week of making friends, getting active in the outdoors, and experiencing the compassionate leadership of their caring cabin counselor. Children ages 8 to 11, entering 3rd – 6th grade will discover fun, activites, and worship designed just for them!

Camp sessions begin Sunday afternoon and continue through Saturday morning. During the week campers enjoy the comfort of a structured program led by well-trained staff. The standard daily schedule includes such things as three balanced meals, fun cabin time, group challenges, morning and evening worship with singing and skits, camper’s choice activities, free time, and Quest Bible study groups. At the conclusion of each week, parents are invited to the pavilion for the Saturday morning closing program, featuring a slide show and singing camp songs.

Come to Clearwater to discover the best week of the summer!
