Register for Winter Break Camp
January 02, 2019
For over 50 years, Camp Discovery has given Lansing area youth the opportunity to explore and discover the natural world in a fun, safe, and nurturing environment!
Get up and get outside! Come and join Woldumar’s staff on one or all of our fun-filled Winter Break Camp days. Campers will experience and experiment outside every day so that there are no “cabin fever” complaints.
All of Woldumar's programs are led by experienced camp counselors and naturalists who are certified in CPR and First Aid and trained in environmental science education.
NEW: FAMILY CAMP
Drop in from 12 pm to 2 pm for a fun filled session for kids and families alike to enjoy some winter fun at Woldumar. Activities will relate to the days camp theme.
