Explorer Program

Ages: 11-13

Sessions: 1-4

Spots per session: 8-15

Day camp, 8:45 a.m.–3 p.m. (or 7 a.m.–6 p.m. with Extended Day) plus two overnights

Explorers participate in normal day camp during their two-week session, with the addition of two exciting explorer-only overnights (Tuesday of each week). They also attend the Family Overnight on Wednesday of the second week.

 

During explorer overnights, the group gets to decide what they want to do with the guidance of their counselors. Some activities that the explorers might participate in include

  • Hikes to favorite or unexplored spots

  • Group games and initiatives

  • Fire building and outdoor cooking

  • Planning and cooking of meals

  • Environmental sensory awareness/acclimatization activities

  • Wood carving and other natural crafts

  • Communal work projects or art projects

  • Swimming

  • Campfire songs and storytelling

 

Registration Note: 11-13 year olds who prefer a day camp only are welcome to register for the Camper program.  The Teen Adventure program is open to 13 year olds as well.
