Camp Discovery is a project of the Tennessee Jaycees and the Tennessee Jaycee Foundation. The Jaycees have been providing summer camping opportunities for people with disabilities for over twenty years. During the last 20 years, we have come a long way in developing and updating our camp to meet the needs of our campers. Camp Discovery is always striving to provide the best camping experience possible.

Camp Discovery is located on the Flynn's Creek area of Cordell Hull Lake in Jackson County, Tennessee. Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills approximately midway between Nashville and Knoxville, our camp facilities spread across a beautiful 186 acres, which run adjacent to Cordell Hull Lake. The surrounding land is undeveloped and remains a sanctuary to local plant and wildlife.

The camp was planned and designed so that all activities, buildings and recreation areas were easily accessible, permitting program traffic to flow easily from one participation or instructional area to another. The site provides for a network of nature trails, overnight wilderness campout locations and overlook areas.
