Summer Discovery at Newlin Grist Mill offers history- and nature-based experiences in an engaging, inclusive, outdoor environment for children ages 4-12. Campers share unique experiences that connect and expand their interactions with each other and their community. Summer Discovery is the place where learning is fun!
At Summer Discovery, we strive to provide fun, engaging activities that encourage campers to follow their passions and connect with the world around them. Traditional camp fun like hiking, games, and scavenger hunts are intertwined with unique educational opportunities that highlight the nature and history our site has to offer. On any given day, campers might be looking for frogs, building a sculpture of recycled materials, baking cookies from an 18th century recipe, or experimenting with magic bubbles. There is no end to the fun adventures that can be had!
Camp runs from 8:30am to 12:30pm on the dates below.
2024 Summer Discovery Camps:
Cost: $225 per camper per week for members, $275 for non-members.
In order to reserve your camper’s spot, we must receive both your payment and fully completed paperwork! Spaces fill up quickly, so we recommend emailing the registration forms and then calling the site to pay over the phone instead of mailing in registration and payment.
Please be aware that there will be a film crew on site February 20th through March 1st. If you are visiting on those days, there will be certain trails and areas of the park closed off to visitors.
Activities like this help support our programs and projects. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
