Our mission

The mission of the Dordt Discovery Days Camp is to provide a fun, safe, and memorable one-week camp experience for students finishing the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. The students will be expected to attend a morning and afternoon class, have the opportunity to stay in the dorms, eat meals in the Commons, participate in evening activities and close the days at camp with worship. It is the desire of the program to spark an interest for future Defenders as we showcase the campus while students explore a wide spectrum of learning areas and experience the authentic Christ-centered atmosphere of Dordt University.
