Usdan’s Discovery Program introduces students to the arts in several disciplines and media. Play and exploration are at the heart of Discovery, where children enjoy music, art, dance and swim multiple times a week. Additional activities draw from Usdan's diverse offerings, such as theater, nature, archery, chess and photography. Discovery campers attend select assemblies performed by professional and student artists. Throughout the week, they are also given opportunities to choose activities based on their own interests. With the Discovery Center as a base, campers have their own small group and college-age counselor to guide them throughout their adventurous day.
