Young children thrive with unhurried time in a natural setting. In 2022 the Young Explorer's program will take place at the River Center where we'll spend time looking for signs of wildlife, exploring the Hidden Homes Trail, and learning about the plants and animals that make this area their home. Each day your camper will participate in singing, arts and crafts, dramatic play, and other hands-on activities led by our experienced staff of Young Explorers counselors. There will be time for water play and nature walks each day.  Parents and grandparents are welcome to stay and join in the fun. Young Explorers camp is held Tuesday through Thursday mornings.
