Discover Discovery Camp

Discovery Camp is a four week program geared towards school aged children designed to:

  • Encourage Learning Outside of a Classroom

  • Foster a Love of Reading

  • Improve Social Skills and Make New Friends

  • Offer Safety and Support 

  • Build Confidence, Develop Self-Reliance, and Independence

Camp begins in June as registration week marks the beginning of the program. Each week, campers will participate in S,T,E,M, (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based programs keeping literature, of course, at the foundation of learning. 

Over the course of four weeks, campers will receive 'library bucks' for every book read or special performance attended. Campers can put those math skills to use by trading library bucks in for prizes.

At the end of camp, campers who read 10 or more books will received a certificate of participation and be invited to attend a special gathering just for them. For children that read 50 books, they will receive a certificate of completion as well as an award metal at the end of camp.

Reads must be logged in Beanstack.
