Discovery Park Camps

Discovery Park Nature Daycamp

Discovery Nature Camps
Discovery Park's Nature Day Camps group campers with trained professional Environmental Educators for a hands-on introduction to Seattle's largest park with the widest diversity of life. Campers will play and form bonds with nature and new friends across the park's eight miles of trails in four distinct habitats - pond, meadows, forest and saltwater beaches. Review the options below and see registration instructions at the top of the page.

This information will be updated should we be able to operate safely for Summer 2021.  Information below is for previous year's camps and is not up to date, but gives an idea of what we have offered in the past.

Campers enjoy hands-on discovery of nature through songs, movement, crafts, and exploration. We visit the four habitats of the park - beach, pond, meadow, and forest - and end the week with a pint-sized festival! The Explorer Day Camps alternate between two different themes.

Campers embark on an adventure through the beaches, ponds, meadows and forests of Discovery Park.
