Science, Adventure, FIESTA! August 10th

C.L.A.W. is Coming!
Join Discovery Deluxe

July 29 – Aug. 9

Discovery Deluxe is a longer, two-week version of Discovery Camp, featuring CLAW – or Camp Legends and Warriors. This is a cherished tradition at KSS, and when Color War ignites, the entire camp divides into five spirited teams with a unique color and team identity. Campers and counselors come together to participate in a diverse range of thrilling challenges.
