The Explorer Overnight Camp is designed for younger age groups to help ease them into overnight stays away from their parents. The program will include both high elements as well as water activities where campers will develop new skills, explore the natural surroundings and the wildlife around them while gaining invaluable knowledge and experience. While in camp, they will learn to be independent, organized and build self-confidence in the company of their new and old friends.
