Explorer Camp

Ages 10 – 13


Excitement Starts Here!

Do your kids love adventure, both outdoors in urban and natural environments as well as indoor with the power of their own imagination? We have created the Explorer Camp just for them! This camp spans a variety of locations along with fun and interactive activities. This summer camp is structured to make sure your children get everything out of it. There will be team activities that will build new friendships and experiments that will open the curiosities of nature. We are so excited for your kids to join us at Explorer Camp.

Designed for our older school-aged kids, Explorer Camp offers greater opportunity for specific skill development. Most of the day will focus on the weekly topic while also offering a healthy dose of swimming, sports, arts and crafts, and field trips. An extra emphasis will be placed on team building and leadership skills this summer. Youth are grouped based on their age and all activities are tailored to the appropriate skill level.

Send your kids to a camp where they build friends while learning life-lasting skills. All kids will have the opportunity to explore their favorite interests and learn new and cool interesting facts. Explorer Camp is created for kids who are looking for the best summer ever!
