DISCOVERY ACADEMIES

Discovery Academies are for kids entering grades 3-5 and are composed of eight 1-week sessions. Academies with insufficient enrollment may be cancelled. Parents will be notified and offered other options.

Exploration Academies provide enrichment opportunities along with many of the activities found in traditional camps.
