We are Season Explorers Summer & Winter Program is an enrichment program that, through structured exploration, has fun themes weekly that we channel into the development of our camper’s imagination and creativity. One of our main focuses is teamwork which promotes lifelong skills such as empathy and respect. With this comes great benefits such as long-lasting friendship and citizenship.
We designed our seasonal program to support our community when schools are out of session. SEASON EXPLORERS is a small program; we have limited spaces available each week because we like to get to know our explorers by name and be able to get to know them and accommodate each one as best as we can.
We are a good old fashion fun camp where it is ok to get dirty, play tag, and learn about farm animals. So, we avoid electronics because we want to encourage our campers to be active. Whether that is
Playing Sports, Gardening, Making Art, Dancing
Register for these 6 super fun weeks at Season Explorers; we guarantee a fun time.
