The Discovery program provides a fun and exciting exploration of the arts for students who have just completed kindergarten or 1st grade. Surrounded by Usdan’s woodland campus, and using the Discovery Center as a base, children have experiences in Music, Art, Nature & Sustainability, Dance, and Recreational Arts, led by professional artists and educators. Two college-age counselors guide each small group throughout their adventurous day, while also creating diverse and engaging activities that are tailored to students’ interests, fostering a safe, nurturing, and positive atmosphere. 

After completing their 1st-grade summer at camp, children from the Discovery program head into Usdan’s Partners in the Arts program feeling confident and excited, because they have spent their summer getting a taste of its many opportunities.

“As his first "real" camp experience, Discovery was a great blend of activities and allowed for two counselors that were consistent throughout his session.”

“It was a great sampler.”

“My son is a highly social, creative, and active child. I was unable to realize how much until his first week at Usdan, when his zeal and zest for life and relationships were reignited and he became his best social self again. I am so thankful for this.”
