Summer fun is natural at the Discovery Zone! 
Plan to join us this summer for a week (or more) of unique programs 
for children entering preschool (age 3) through 7th grade

Discovery Summer will run from 9am to 12pm each day 

What's Happening at Discovery Summer?

Each week is unique, but there are a few things our campers can always expect: 

- Using dip nets and digital photography throughout the week

- Daily games, crafts, songs, and exploration

-Finding bugs, frogs, salamanders, and other animals along the trails

- The once-a-week water fun day

- Having a blast outdoors!

What is new to ensure everyone's safety? 

-Fewer children will be allowed to enroll each week. There will be three groups of no more than 10-14 per group. These groups will remain separate from each other at all times for the week. 

-All children's temperatures will be taken by our staff prior to each session. If a child registers a temperature above 100, they will not be allowed into the session that day nor will they be able to return until they are fever free without medicine for 72 hours.

-Children exhibiting other symptoms such as cough, runny nose, rash, etc. may be denied entrance for the safety of other campers and staff, or will need to be picked up if symptoms arise once the session has begun.

-Hand washing prior to and after the session, bathroom break and snack. 

-If masks are required by the State of CT Office of Early Childhood/Youth Camps Division when their summer camp requirements come out later this spring, we will follow their directive. (If you know you do not want your child wearing a mask under any circumstance, please do not sign up for this program, as we may still choose to require the use of masks.)

-Please read additional information in our waiver document prior to registering.

Reviews from Parents


"Let me first say what a great time my boys had at camp- you and the camp staff do such a fantastic job running such a great program. THANK YOU!!!! I have been so impressed- wish I had found Webb Mountain sooner.

-Karen Kellogg of Shelton

“My daughter just completed her second week of camp and we couldn't be happier.  She signed up originally for one week and begged to go again.  Mr. Tom and all the counselors were fantastic.  They put in such an amazing amount of work to ensure that the kids enjoyed every second.  My four year old bounced out of bed every morning excited and eager to get to camp.  We will definitely be back next summer.”
-Kate Hinrichsen of Trumbull

“It was great to have my son outdoors for several hours of the day, learning about things that I probably wouldn't expose him to myself.  What a great opportunity to educate my 3.5 year old-hands on and exploration!”
-Alessa Podolak Laczkoski of Monroe
