WillowWood's Camp Discovery


Summer 2019 July 2nd-July 26th


Discovery Programs offer opportunities to improve academic skills in a fun, rewarding way. Students will practice skills and learn new strategies in an energized, positive atmosphere. Summer staff - who are the same experienced, specialized teachers who make our school work during the academic year - create a safe, student-centered environment and motivate campers to try new things and find their strengths.

Campers make new friends, discover new interests and talents, and learn to confidently explore - perhaps finding a knack with computers, a flare for writing poetry, or a love of swimming.

Discovery Programs can be either Half-Day or Full Day sessions, running from 9:30 until 12:30, or 9:30 until 4:00 pm.

  • offer individualized, student-centered teaching and mentorship
