    For over 50 years, Camp Discovery has given Lansing area youth the opportunity to explore and discover the natural world in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment!

    Not only do campers learn about nature and science as they participate in outdoor recreation, but our experienced counselors also coach them in teamwork, leadership, and communication.

    Again this year, a certified yoga instructor will lead kids yoga and mindfulness during Tuesday and Thursday "Before-Care." 

    We now offer a 4 & 5 year-old full-day camp option. Preschoolers will explore the same weekly themes as the rest of camp, but do so in the context of age-appropriate activities and a different daily routine.

    The experiences children have at Woldumar will stay with them throughout life!
