Discovery Camp is full of firsts for many kids, and will be for you, too! You'll explore nature while getting down and dirty with the forests, rivers, and critters that make these mountains home. You'll search for salamanders, collect insects, experience the awesome power of a waterfall, hike through wilderness, cool off in the swimming hole, and laugh with your new friends around the campfire. You'll even become a Junior Ranger through the National Park Service! This is the place where you discover just how exciting nature can be at a summer camp like no other. Camp lasts Monday afternoon to Saturday morning.

Cost: $523. Financial aid applications are available at gsmit.org/summeryouth.html and must be received no later than March 22, 2013, so contact us today!

Ages 9-12.
