Dordt Discovery Days 2009 was held on campus June 22 - 26. More than 200 junior high school students from across the United States were on campus for a week's worth of fun, games, and learning with the theme "Hair Raising Discovery".
Discovery Days participants chose from a variety of classes in music,
theater, art, sports, and other interests. This year's camp offered
30 classes. New offerings this year included Money Madness (being a
smart consumer); Cooking with Karen, and How It's Made (tours of
area manufacturing facilities).
