Camp Discovery is a summer day camp program committed to serving your child's needs. This camp fills each day with:

Your 5 to 11 year old child will have the opportunity to swim at the Veterans Memorial Park Pool, plus go on exciting weekly field trips and see spectacular entertainers. All children are grouped by age and all activities are age appropriate.
Accreditation & Staff
Though state accreditation of our camps is unavailable, this camp is ACA Accredited. See the Camp Discovery Staff page for information on the workers who help run this great program!


This camp is open to residents of South Windsor only. Registration begins in March. Camp fills quickly, so be sure to register early for activity #321001.

To ensure safety and appropriateness of all programs, we maintain strict age guidelines for all camps. If your child is turning 5 during a camp week, they can sign up for Camp Discovery starting that session. If your child is turning 12 during a camp week, they can attend Camp Discovery until that session is over. 


Cost of camp is $195 per week, based on a 5-day week (Fourth of July is an exception). Payment plans available online.
