Discovery Camp offers Camp Olson’s traditional camping at its finest. Campers live, learn, and discover the “Spirit of the Northwoods” through new friendships, independence, and exploration of the outdoors. Campers are assigned a cabin at the beginning of the session and will live with two counselors and fellow campers similar in age. Mornings are spent with their cabin group and are structured to include all of the activities Camp Olson has to offer. During the afternoon, campers are given the freedom to choose their own activity. Discovery Campers will also camp out 1 night with their cabin around our beautiful Shurds Lakes.

Love Discovery Camp but are looking for a new adventure? Try Canoe Camp! This program is structured just like Discovery Camp with one exception. Instead of having your overnight in the shurds, campers will travel down the Boy River and camp away from camp for the night. Campers will prepare for their trip by heading down to the outpost the afternoon before their departure to practice canoeing and other camping skills. This program is a great first step for campers hoping to join the LIT program in future summers.
