Summer time is quickly approaching and Cinnamon Tree is excited to announce that we will be celebrating our 30th year of Discovery Camp this summer! We will be looking forward to an extra special, fun-filled program with plenty of individual attention from experienced, enthusiastic teachers and counselors. Within this environment, returning campers quickly ease back into our program, ready to enjoy a summer with familiar friends and staff. New campers are warmly welcomed and quickly feel part of this group.

Cindy and Stacy will be leading our campers through a variety of events that are built around fun and exciting weekly themes! Our themes include age appropriate activities, special guests and scheduled trips away from the center.

We will once again have three divisions in our camp, the 5-8 year olds, the 9&10's and the 11-13 year olds. Campers in the different age groups will have their own classroom spaces with activities geared toward their interests. Our program is designed to allow the age groups to interact at various times throughout the day. During these times you might find the older campers reading to the younger campers, putting on a play, or just simply passing on the skills they've acquired through their own camp experiences. This unique feature of our Discovery Camp provides a comfortable, family like atmosphere where the older campers enjoy mentoring and supporting the younger campers.

Great memories of summer camp is our goal. Our summer kickoff begins on Monday, June 25th.

Bring your towels and sunscreen each Thursday as our campers hit the beach. We will swim at Red Wing Park weeks 2-8. Pizza will be offered each Friday and our campers can again look forward to 2 special “movie nights”. The Kona Ice truck will be back for weekly visits throughout the summer and for special events so be sure to see Cindy about getting your discount Kona card!
