Explorer Camp (Grades 1-3)
YOU ARE NOT LETTING THEM GO, YOU ARE LETTING THEM GROW
Explorer Camp is a 4-day, 3-night camping experience designed to introduce our youngest campers, 1st-3rd graders, to overnight camp and to allow parents to adjust to the idea of their camper being away from home. Our focus is to create a safe, comfortable and fun camping experience for our Explorer campers. Each Explorer cabin is made up of 9 campers and 2 staff members.
We place a very strong emphasis on cabin unity and camaraderie. Explorers stay together with their cabin group and sample camp activities in shorter, age-appropriate activity periods. Climbing Wall, Twilight Zone, Flying Squirrel, Art and Crafts, and the Kangaroo Hunt are just some of the fun activities that our Explorers enjoy. Our Explorer Camp counselors are dedicated to creating a supportive environment where our youngest campers can become more independent and build new friendships.
“I feel that all of my son’s camp experiences over the years have helped him in so many ways….more responsible, outgoing, caring for others, accepting others who are different. He is just more well rounded as a person.” – Rebecca
