Explorers Camp Ages 6-8

Half Day PM Explorers Camps for ages 6-8

Explorers Camp is designed to deepen campers’ connection with the outdoors through hands-on exploration paired with recreational adventure. Join us as we delve into the wonders that the Catamount Community Forest has to offer, sometimes on bikes and other times by foot. In addition to being active outside and building skills in a non-competitive environment, campers will also have the opportunity to learn basic outdoor skills like navigation, knot tying, and fire building. We will also learn about local ecology as well as plant & animal identification. Explorers Camp hopes to spark a curiosity of the natural world around us all that sticks with campers for years, and hopefully generations, to come!

Counselor to camper ratio is 1:8.
