Camp Discovery 2011

Join us for SACC’s Camp Discovery, where fun and laughter fill the air as minds are inspired and dreams encouraged. This summer, campers can look forward to many new and time-honored camp experiences as they jump into a nature-filled summer of investigation and discovery. From camp songs and cheers to outdoor excursions, there’s something that’s sure to capture each camper’s interest. An adventure-filled summer awaits, whether campers pick a cabin and stay for a while, or explore what each cabin has to offer. Field trips will round out a summer of fun!
