About Discovery Camp
Immanuel offers a summer camp program for children from four years of age through those entering Eighth Grade this fall. The program runs from the week after school is out (K-8th grade) in June until mid-August every year.
Children are provided with supervised playtime, indoor and outdoor recreation, field trips, arts and crafts projects, interesting educational experiences and Bible study. Activities will be planned around weekly thematic units and include swimming at the Palatine Pool. Weekly field trips are included in our camp program, based on the theme of the week. Children attending Discovery Camp during the third week will also participate in Immanuel’s Adventure Bible Camp.
Friendly and enthusiastic Christian counselors direct Immanuel’s Discovery Camp. Each counselor is selected based on skills and training, maturity, creativity, and sensitivity to the needs of all camp participants. Many of Immanuel’s counselors and directors have training in education and years of experience working with children. Several are also Alumni from Immanuel Lutheran School, choosing to give back to the school that meant so much to them. The 4 and 5 year-olds have a program designed to meet the needs of these wonderful children.
