Discovery Camp

Once again the Thornden Park Association and The New School have set dates for the highly successful 2019 summer children's Discovery Camp. This year we will be sponsoring five weeks of camp at rates unchanged from last year.

Children will explore Thornden Park’s many features, enjoying outdoor activities which integrate art, science, and language arts. Weather permitting, there will be swimming included in daily activities for Camp 2, Camp 3, and Camp 4. Camp 1 will not swim daily, but will visit the sprinkler. Camp 5 cannot swim because the pool will be closed by that week. Thornden Park Association underwrites part of the cost of Camps 1 - 3. The camp is co-sponsored by The New School and Syracuse's Department of Parks, Recreation & Youth Programs.

 

Please note that there are TWO registration forms. Please use the Thornden Park Association form for Camps 1 – 3 and The New School form for Camp 4 and 5. Your registration form and fee will secure your child’s place in the camp.
