Aerial-croppedMeet Rotary Camps & Services’ Newest Property!

After receiving a $1 million grant from Rotary Charities to acquire the property, Rotary Camps & Services purchased Discovery Pier (the former Traverse City Light & Power coal dock properties) in December 2015 with the vision to create another open space for the community with universal access to West Bay.

As the owner of the neighboring Discovery Center ~ Great Lakes property, Rotary Camps & Services has placed restrictions on the properties that will ensure public access and extend the mission of the Discovery Center: to secure a permanent home for tall ships, maritime history education, recreation, and freshwater education. Camps & Services is working closely with Elmwood Township, ensuring that the use of the properties are in line with the township’s vision for the recently approved marina district, including extending public access to the waterfront, updating existing docks and preserving the deep-water port.
