DISCOVERY CAMPS

WHEN SCHOOL IS OUT, DISCOVERY CAMP IS IN!

We have four sessions available during the school year to suit everyone’s interests.

From STEM to music, garden to table, there is something new for everyone here at CDMOD!

GENERAL INFORMATION
  • Camps are organized by grade level to meet the developmental needs of our campers. Campers must be enrolled in the designated grade in the fall of the same year.
  • A completed Registration Form and full payment are required to enroll your child in camp.
  • Camp Sessions are open Monday through Friday.

We have 4 classes:

  • Hummingbirds: Must be enrolled in TK or Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year.
  • Desert Tortoises: Must be enrolled in 1st or 2nd grade for the 2019-2020 school year.

Meals and Snacks:

  • All the classes have a scheduled snack during the morning session and the afternoon session. If your child prefers their own snack, please send one.
  • Campers enrolled for a full-day session have a supervised lunchtime. CDMOD does not provide lunch for any camper. Please send your child to camp with a lunch that does not require refrigeration or heating.
  • If your child has food sensitivities/allergies, please include that information on your registration form so that we can make appropriate accommodations.

What your child needs for camp:

  • Comfortable clothing. Our camps are activity-oriented, please make sure your child is comfortable with clothes they can get messy in, and closed-toe shoes (sneakers are recommended) that are comfortable for walking.
  • Sunscreen. Please apply sunscreen before camp. You may send sunscreen along with your child for re-application.
  • Water. Please send your child with a filled water bottle daily as we will spend some time outside and it will be warm.
