Sample Weekly Itinerary

Departure 9 AM Return 4 PM

Each week offers kids, 6 and older, a different combination of FUN outdoor activities, but every week, all campers will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills and gain a sense of their niche in the environment through experiencing the sheer joy of being in and learning about the natural world.  At Discover Virginia, small groups of campers are guided by a team of experienced, professional leaders, through a variety of interesting, valuable, and FUN outdoor activities.
