Explore Camp  

A traditional Summer Camp program that serves school-age youth, entering grades K thru 4.  Children in Explore Camp are placed into groups with children of the same age for each session.  Activity areas for Explore campers include: World Builders (STEM), Sports & Team Building, Skits & Songs, Nature/Outdoor Skills, Health & Fitness, Gardening, and Instructionsal & Free Swim.

The outdoor pool is watched over by two full time lifeguards and is supervised by the team of counselors from each group participating in Swim.  The pool measures 2 - 4.5 feet in depth, and is roped off according to swimmer's abilities.  All youth participate in swim lessons as a part of their daily schedule.  Swim lessons are considered a prerequisite to free swim periods in the afternoon.

Discovery Camp 

This program is for youth entering the 5th and 6th grade in the fall.  Youth participate in age appropriate team building activities including outdoor skills, service projects and three weekly field trips. Camp Fire North Shore's Discovery Camp is a relaxed atmosphere in a natural environment that helps youth to develop skills to work within a group, make friends, build self-esteem, make good decisions and learn firsthand about the environment.

Discovery campers take part in swim activities at the pool when they are not scheduled to be on a field trip.

Some of these activities include swimming, going to the beach, cultural and arts tours, geocaching, visiting amusement parks, watching sports & more!
