Camp Discover is a two-week summer program for Tracy City Elementary School students in grades 1-6.  The program is designed to foster resilience by helping children and families strengthen connections to each other, their community, and the world. With an emphasis on exploring, sharing and celebrating the community’s stories and heritage, children also participate in literacy-based activities such as read-alouds, song-writing, photographing , and journaling.
The program is part of Discover Together, an ongoing collaboration involving Scholastic, Yale Child Study Center, the University of the South, Tracy City Elementary School, and other local organizations. In addition to Camp Discover, a family cooperative program for families with young children ages birth through 5 yrs. and a learning lab where families and children can gather around school projects form the foundation of the Discover Together constellation of programs.
