REGISTRATION For Summer 2022
IS NOW OPEN

We are back at our beautiful Colfax Campus!

Come have fun with us this Summer

During the Summer break, campers will be having lots of fun doing arts and crafts, sports, gardening, learning about farm animals, and much more. Our goal is to have a safe and fun environment for all campers. We will divide campers by their age groups. The ages for campers at our program are 4 1/2 if potty trained to 11 years old; our ratio is ten campers per 1 coach with a Jr coach. (Jr coaches are middle or high schoolers that are learning to be a coach). All our coaches or Jr coaches are vaccinated and trained to be around the campers.

Season Explorers is an enrichment program that encourages a child’s love for exploration, imagination, and creativity. We design our seasonal program to support our community when your child’s school is not in session. We are a small and exclusive summer program; we have limited space each week. We like to know our explorers by name and accommodate each of them as best we can.

We carefully design each week to focus on teamwork, promoting lifelong skills such as empathy and respect. We believe that our program will promote long-lasting bonds of friendship and citizenship.

Our weekly themes have a variety of exciting activities such as:

Creative Play, Sports, Garden,  Farm, and Special Guest appearances.

Register for these 6 super fun weeks! At Season Explorers, we guarantee a fun time.

WEEK 1

Regular hours: 9:00am to 4:00pm

It’s Summer! Let’s have fun at our beautiful Colfax Campus, make new friends, play and enjoy the old friends, and create summer memories. And what can be better than starting summer vacation being a Super Hero? We will play games with our special guests, do arts and crafts, do some training at the training facilities and solve some mysteries that you will have to un-puzzle to get your superhero badge.
PS: To be a superhero you also can demonstrate to us during this week, your passion for being kind, helping a friend that is shy or new at our Camp, showing others how to recycle, to be respectful, to have a voice and be active. We will be behind you step by step, cheering and supporting you.
Let’s do this together!

WEEK 2

So this week throughout art, let’s create a dance presentation or an art by painting or creating something with recycling, singing or writing poetry.
