Winter 2003 Forward to a Friend

Discovery Camp offers five - and 10-day sessions staffed by enthusiastic counselors.
As part of Colorado’s Keystone Center, the Keystone Science School is dedicated to providing quality science education for children and adults through hands-on inquiry of the natural world. Every summer, hundreds of campers attend the school’s Discovery Camp, a program that’s enthusiastically supported by the Subaru of America Foundation, Inc.

Discovery Camp features a 23-acre mountain site.

Located in the mountains outside Keystone, Colorado, the camp’s 23-acre site offers plenty of opportunities for campers to explore and learn about the world through a wide variety of carefully selected activities. By instilling campers with a sense of encouragement and wonder, campers gain an appreciation for the interaction among people, animals and the environment.

The camp offers five- and 10-day sessions, and with a ratio of six campers to every counselor, the camp offers a warm and personal environment that’s accepting of all individuals. During their adventures, campers learn to work together in groups, and develop enhanced decision-making abilities, as well as improved communication, leadership and conflict-resolution skills.

Campers learn to work together in groups.
The Subaru of America Foundation recently partnered with the Keystone Science School to provide scholarships to Colorado’s economically disadvantaged youth. Often, children from disadvantaged areas have few opportunities to see and understand wildlife and the natural environment. The scholarships provided by Subaru alleviate this shortfall, and help as many children as possible have access to the experiences available at Discovery Camp. The partnership has produced campers who head home with positive attitudes toward learning, increased desire to succeed in school and an understanding and appreciation of others.
