An Extended Camp Days option (7:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.) is available during all camp sessions for $50 per child.
Lunch meals are provided for every summer discovery camper! Vegetarian and non-vegetarian options are available on a weekly basis. Menus available the morning of the first camp day. Lunch service is provided by Bodegas Taco Shop and the Park Grill.
Early Bird Registration
Register between March 1 - 31 and get $25 off your second camp, and any additional camps after that! Camps must be purchased in a single transaction to take advantage of this offer.
Camps are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to high demand for camp spaces, all sales are considered final. During the camp season, camps that are full will be posted as such on our website. If a camp is full, your registration and payment will not be processed, and you will be contacted promptly so that you can make other arrangements. You will have the option of placing your camper on a wait list.
