Explorer Camp: 1st – 2nd Grade

Explorer campers will take part in funshops daily, such as woodworking, swim and no-heat cooking.  Our Explorer Campers will share age-appropriate field trips with both our Adventure Camp and Junior Camp.  They will also take part in all special events held on campus like the Talent Show, Mini Olympics and a variety of Spirit Days!

Campers will stay together with their group as they attend their three funshops each morning.
