Summer Discovery Camp

The Banner School Discovery Camp, located near downtown Frederick, offers children a fun and educational theme-based camp experience. All of our camps are run by experienced staff with a small camper to counselor ratio to ensure that each camper has fun in a safe environment.  Camp offerings vary each week and include adventure hikes, creative arts, STEAM exploration, and more.  We are delighted to offer many new programs as well as annual favorites.

Our camps are open to the public and designed for students who have completed Kindergarten through eighth grade.  A camp schedule is distributed to parents at the beginning of each week so they are aware of all on-site activities and field trips their child will be participating in during their camp experience. We offer a variety of morning, afternoon, or full-day camps.

All camps are priced individually. Some of our specialty camps are priced separately and may require registration through a third party site as indicated. Please review each camp selection before enrolling your child.

We hope that you will join us this summer!  Adventures await your child at our camp programs!

Once you have registered, please see the required Registration Forms so that your camper’s file is complete.

Early Childhood Summer Session

Our Early Childhood Summer Session is a perfect mix of fun and academics. Weekly themes incorporate circle time, weather, music, math, reading, writing, and arts and crafts. We enjoy local field trips, cooking, guest speakers, and many outdoor activities. This program is perfect for campers ages 3 through 5 who have not completed a Kindergarten program.  All campers must be potty-trained before they can attend.

Our staff are CPR/First Aid certified/AED/Epi-Pen trained and meet current MSDE OCC teacher regulations.

A nut-free morning snack is provided for all participants, or campers may bring their own snack if preferred.

Families can choose from a half-day A.M. session or a full-day session. All participants can also register for before or after care if needed.

Participants will need a completed health inventory immunization form and an emergency card on file. If your child is in need of any medications while attending, a medication authorization form must also be completed by a Physician.
