Discovery Kids Summer Camp

Join Us for a Summer of Discovery!

Keep your kids busy this summer at Discovery Summer Camp, where activity and learning go hand-in-hand.  Our camp takes place on The International School of Minnesota’s private 55-acre wooded campus, adjacent to the Three Rivers Park District’s Bryant Lake Park and beach.  Discovery Summer Camp is open to students throughout the Twin Cities as well as those enrolled at The International School of Minnesota. Students can join us for one week or for the full summer, participating in a variety of exciting theme-based activities. See what a day of Discovery Summer Camp looks like by checking out the daily schedule.


Our safeengaging, and enriching summer experience is designed for students ages 3-12 with an opportunity for older students to participate in our junior counselor program! We balance academics with movement, art, and play! 


Camp care is available from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday, making it a stress-free choice for parents impacted by late start or early finishing day-camps.  Activities take place between 8:30 AM and 3:30 PM daily, and feature art, music, world language, athletics, and more!
