“Beauty in humble things has a healthful effect on the soul.”  ~ Donna Johnson, Founder


What started as a dream about bringing together people of diverse ages and backgrounds in a special place of “discovery” became a reality in 1985 when recreation therapist, Donna Johnson, founded what is now known today as Camp Discovery.

Camp Discovery originated as a recreation therapy program serving children and youth in most need throughout our community. Since then, the populations that the Camp serves have continued to expand alongside the Camp's offerings that now include hands-on, nature-based experiences for people of all ages and backgrounds.

As we look ahead, Camp Discovery remains dedicated to serving our community through innovative engaging programs and activities delivered in a safe, supportive natural setting.
