The Explorers Camp is carefully designed with those pre-teen campers in mind. Combining traditional day camp activities, day trips and overnight trips, this age group has many varying areas of interest and activities. Whether it’s sports, tennis, arts and crafts, swimming, computers and more, explorer campers are given the chance to participate in activities that they enjoy. Our focus here is to enhance confidence, explore opportunities and develop new skills and interests in a safe, exciting and enjoyable setting.
Trips are 2-3 days per week to various sites and attractions in and around the tri-state area. For our longer trips, air-conditioned coach buses are used. Some of the planned trips are: Dorney Park, Splish Splash, Liberty Science Center, Yankee and/or Mets Baseball games, New Roc City, Wildwood, Intrepid Museum, Chelsea Piers, Bowling, Beast, Splish Splash and many more.
Trip schedules will be posted on our website and can be accessed by logging into your camp portal account prior to the start of camp. They will also be discussed at length at pre-camp parent meetings. All trips are included in camp fees.
There are no overnight trips however, there are some extended day trips where the campers will either have to be at camp very early or return to camp later than regular dismissal times. In that event, bus service changes will be announced.
Swimming is done on non-trip days. For swimming, campers ability and skill levels are evaluated on an individual basis. They are then placed in a designated swim group that is suited to their needs. If they require beginner instruction, it is done by our fully licensed and trained staff on a limited basis.
