More About Discoverers:

Campers entering 2nd and 3rd grade are built and primed for discovery.  They are ready to explore all that Camp CUBBER has to offer, from the great daily activities and special onsite guests to the exciting field trips.  Campers entering 2nd and 3rd grade will also participate in opening session complete with live praise and worship, games, skits, and much more every morning.


We know that these campers are making the transition from Kindergarten /1st Grade and CUBBER Jr. to being a full part of Camp CUBBER, and we seek to make that transition as smooth as possible.  Discoverers @ Camp CUBBER will participate in many of the great amenities of camp, while still having the opportunity of being separate.  Discoverers will still be in age appropriate classrooms (with kids in their grade level) and do activities specifically designed for them.  Discoverers will also eat lunch and snack with only their groups (entering 2nd and 3rd grade).  Discoverers enjoy their own field trips geared especially towards their age group.  Some of those weekly trips might include places like: Pump It Up, Future Flipz, Clearwater Aquarium, Bowling, Movies @ AMC Theaters, Lowry Park Zoo, Captain Memo’s Pirate Cruise, and MOSI (the Museum of Science and Industry).  Discoverers will also go swimming @ the Highland Family Aquatics Center throughout the summer and enjoy one onsite guest or activity, which could include: Live Animal or Science Shows, Onsite Inflatables or Miniature Golf, Live Magic or Theater Shows, and much more.


We want every camper to have a great time here @ Camp CUBBER.  That means a summer that is specifically tailored for each age group and offering lots of variety and fun for campers choosing to attend just a few weeks or most of the summer.   Plus you can select which weeks you want your child to attend so that you are sure that the field trips and activities are right for your family.  As with all age groups, registration begins in March, but please note that our Discoverers age group tends to be our largest group (and quickest to fill up).  So don't miss out, register early!
