3-Year-Old "Young Explorers"

For children who turn three by 9/30.

Whether it’s your child’s first summer with us or they’re old pros, Young Explorers is the place for relationships, self-esteem, and curiosity to grow! Our 3’s program challenges campers to investigate themselves and their friendships while empowering them to become little leaders themselves. And did we mention that it was a blast? Campers will be busy as bees with days chock full of opportunities for growth, exploration, and silliness. They aren’t called Young Explorers for nothing!
