VSU Camp Discovery

Your kids will have fun while learning in our week-long summer day camps! Camp Discovery provides opportunities for individuals age 5 and up to make friends and grow through age-appropriate enrichment activities. All camps are designed to be fun for participants, as well as to improve academic, artistic, and/or physical skills.

Camp Discovery takes place for 9 weeks each year beginning the week of Memorial Day. Most activities are held Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to noon. Some afternoon camps will be available. Weekly fees start at $85 and vary based on the cost of the activities. An afternoon “Rec Room” program, offering facilitated activities and learning experiences, is also available from 1-4 pm each afternoon for an extra charge. A supervised lunch break is available for those attending a camp in the morning and the Rec Room or another camp in the afternoon (lunch not provided).
