Discovery Overnight Camp: What to Expect?


Discovery Overnight Camp is the flagship overnight program at Keystone Science School. This overnight camp option offers a traditonal overnight camp experience mixed with Science, Adventure, and FUN! Campers can choose from 1 or 2 week sessions. Each session follows the same core activities and adventures with a different science theme hidden in each week.

Sleeping Accommodations- Where do you start?

The first step of Discovery Overnight Camp is choosing your sleeping accommodations: the dorms or the tents in Snake River Village. The dorms, Bighorn and Henry, each have 8 rooms with 2 bunk beds in each, which you can see in our 3D tour. Campers will be placed in a room with children of similar grades. In addition, the dorms have a lobby area with couches and a shared bathroom. The other sleeping accommodation is the canvas tents near the Snake River. There are 4 tents, each sleeping 6 or 7 campers. This choice adds more of a rustic feel to the camp experience, but everything that a camper could need is in a building a short walk away.

What’s next?

If campers enjoyed their week at Discovery Camp, they can always return next summer! If they want to expand on their traditional camp experience, Discovery Deluxe is the two-week session of Discovery camp. It includes all of the same activities as a normal week but also includes the Keystone Science School’s color war, known as CLAW. In addition, our Adventure programs are an option for older campers. These are off-campus programs in various locations that have a higher level of an outdoor adventure than traditional Discovery Camp. If a high school-aged camper is set on sticking in Discover Camp, though, they can become a member of the Counselor Assistant Program (CAP). This allows them more of a leadership role in the traditional camp world.
