Summer Discovery at Newlin Grist Mill offers history- and nature-based experiences in an engaging, inclusive, outdoor environment for children ages 4-12. Campers share unique experiences that connect and expand their interactions with each other and their community. Summer Discovery is the place where learning is fun!
At Summer Discovery, we strive to provide fun, engaging activities that encourage campers to follow their passions and connect with the world around them. Traditional camp fun like hiking, games, and scavenger hunts are intertwined with unique educational opportunities that highlight the nature and history our site has to offer. On any given day, campers might be looking for frogs, building a sculpture of recycled materials, baking cookies from an 18th century recipe, or experimenting with unbreakable bubbles. There is no end to the fun adventures that can be had!
Camps run from 8:30am to 12:30pm each day and include a peanut-free snack.
"I felt safe leaving my son with special needs in the hands of the director and the counselors. Wonderful staff!"
“Truly a great week of camp! Fun yet educational, laid-back vibe yet still active with a full schedule. Also, we thought it was great that [camp staff] were so involved and willing to be silly with the kids."
"Organized, friendly trusting staff, not over crowded. I love that they were always excited about something they learned and that you weren’t afraid to let the kids get dirty."
"The check-in and-out process is the best of all the camps we have experienced... I felt very secure about my kids’ safety."
