Ages 6-8

Our Explorers program is an abbreviated experience designed to introduce young adventurers to overnight camp and allow parents to adjust to the idea of their camper being away from home. Explorers will participate in activities like nature exploration, arts and crafts, hiking, boating, group games, building gnome homes and more (gnome sightings not guaranteed). Explorers can develop independence while experiencing a small community. The Explorers program is small in numbers and big in activities. We also increase the ratio of staff for this camp.
