About Explorer Camp

“Explorers” participate in an array of recreational camp activities that include sports, group games, arts and crafts, chess, dance, and outdoor exploration.

Campers explore different activities with a group of 25 of their peers. Each group is led by trained and experienced Group Leaders and Instructors. To encourage learning, a camper’s activity schedule stays the same for the entire session. Care is taken to include a balance of high-intensity activities (e.g. soccer, swimming, or basketball) and low-intensity activities (e.g. arts and crafts or nature walks) throughout the day. Whether your camper is a first-timer or an experienced Explorer camper, our exciting and active program is sure to create lasting memories for your camper for years to come!

Each camp session features an exciting theme. Past themes have included: Outer Space, Under the Sea, Superheroes, Storybook, and Jungle Time. In addition to a wide array of structured activities, campers are provided with ample opportunities to build positive relationships with friends through free play and group games that emphasize positive play and pro-social behaviors.
