discovery Day Camp

East Madison

Ages 5-13*

We’re forecasting an entire summer of fun on the East Side! Kids stay active and engaged at this camp that literally becomes a hub of constant activity. Every day, campers rotate through games on our field, creative activity tents, tetherball, the GaGa pit, on-site splash pad, sports and more. We take regular trips to a nearby park, swim at least once a week at the East Y and go on weekly field trips.
