Discover Discovery Camp

Discover Discovery Camp

Located at the Central Spokane YMCA, Discovery Camp is a day camp focused on the core principles of science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM. Each week of camp is structured around a theme designed to educate, engage and expose children to new and creative aspects of learning about the world around them. With field trips to local cupcake shops, hospitals and the sewage treatment plant as well as meeting local FBI agents and video game creators, kids are sure to enjoy themselves.


This camp is designed with more of a classroom feel, but the kids will still get the traditional day camp experience of hiking around parks, trips to Splashdown, swimming and games.
