Camp Discovery at Fairleigh Dickinson University is a traditional day camp with emphasis on enriching activities and field trips. The camp is open to children entering 1st through 7th grades. Activities include Science, Theater, Swimming (Madison only), Sports, Arts-n-Crafts, World Discovery, Games, and Fun Field Trips. We have been offering a wonderful camp experience to the local community for over 20 years.
Our staff to camper ratio is 5:1. Activities are designed and led by certified teachers. Our counselors are primarily college students and young teachers who have lots of experience with children. We have a warm atmosphere and focus on helping children make friends and build self esteem.
Our campers come from towns surrounding the Madison and Teaneck locations. The camp appeals to kids with many different interests. They play sports, cook, launch rockets, dance, swim, race homemade cars, make crafts and artwork. This is all done with a dedicated group of counselors and teachers, many of whom have been with the camp for 10 to 15 years.
Our parents often say to us, “I wish I had found you earlier” and “my children just love it here – your program is great fun and the kids are excited about discovering lots of new things”. “It truly is a camp that can be enjoyed by everyone”.
Our Leader in Training program for 8th and 9th grade campers offers leadership opportunities, workshops, and fun/educational field trips.
Weekly field trips for the 2016 season include the Funplex, The American Museum of Natural History, The Crayola Experience, Bowling, Adventure Aquarium and a New York City off or on Broadway show. Our trips are very well organized and safe.
Camp Discovery runs from June 27 – August 5, 2016 in three two week sessions.
