Summer Camp Discovery (Grades PreK-7th)

Camp Discovery's summer camp is open to those entering grades Pre-K through 7th grade. We also offer special sessions for teens and a STEM internship program for high schoolers. It is a safe place for campers to make friends, learn about nature, and participate in structured & unstructured play. Whether you're a returning camper or new, we welcome you to share your summer at Woldumar!

What to Expect:

With special themes running each session, counselors design age-appropriate activities for their group. Silly songs, fun games, and STEM lessons bring nature alive during the week. Woldumar's forest, wetland, and prairie habitats serve as our playground and science lab. Campers experience the excitement of science through pond dipping, bug catching, shelter building, bird watching, and fishing. All staff are certified in CPR, AED, First Aid, and trained in child development throughout a compressive week-long staff training.

Pick up and Drop off:

  • Drop off at 9:00 am

  • Pick up is at 4:00 pm

For safety and security, the caregiver must drop-off and pick-up the camper directly with their camp counselor. For your convenience, we will be offering numbered car tags to expedite check-out at the end of the day. To receive a car tag, you must show your ID and be on the approved pick-up list.


  • Nonmembers: $240 per week

  • Members: $205 per week

Full online payment by credit card is due at the time of registration. If you have been awarded a scholarship or need to pay with check or cash, you need to contact within 24 hours to make payment arrangements. Unpaid registration and registrations without arrangements will be canceled after seven days. PLEASE check your schedule before registering and be careful when choosing options. We are very low tech, and changes are made by a human, a very time-consuming (and costly) endeavor. Please review our refund policy below.

Scholarships Are Available!

Our scholarship program aims to help families with financial needs. We want all children to experience the benefits of spending a week outdoors at Woldumar. 

Please follow this link to fill out a scholarship request.

Refund/Cancellation Policy:

Cancellations before June 1st, will result in a 50% refund. Any cancellations after June 1st will not receive a refund. If spaces are available, registration can be changed to a different week during the current summer camp season at no additional cost. If camp sessions are canceled for health and safety reasons as directed by local, state, or national health officials, full refunds will be issued.

What to Bring:

Michigan summers can be HOT! Campers should:

  • dress for the weather

  • wear closed-toe shoes

  • bring a water bottle

  • have sunscreen and insect repellent

  • a sack lunch

Please pack a swimsuit, towel, and water shoes for water play and bring a backpack to carry it all. Some items to leave at home include trading cards, personal electronics, stuffed animals, and anything else that may distract from camp activities.

Lunch & Snack:

There are no food restrictions on what campers may bring from home. We ask that campers do not share food with each other. Woldumar provides a prepackaged snack in the afternoon for every camper and water available all day. Sending a light morning snack is recommended.

Camp Store:

We will send an order form home with campers for the Woldumarket. Please bring exact change for your order. We will not be issuing any change and overpayment will go into donations. 

Extended Care:

Because of the limitation of staffing and space, we are unable to offer extended care this summer. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. 

COVID-19 Update:

Camp Discovery follows Guidelines for Camp Operations During COVID-19 For Use in Licensed Children’s Camps in accordance with Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA). These practices were created by MI LARA and could change as the pandemic situation develops.
