The success of Explorer Camp is undoubtedly the quality of our teaching staff. All are highly successful young teachers, educators and motivators who are selected from the area’s top colleges and universities. They are complemented by our experts and guest speakers during special events.
The philosophy of Explorers Camp is one of experimentation and experience. Children will learn through a complete “hands-on” approach, highlighting exploration and critical analysis.
The learning environment that Explorer Camp creates allows for personal expression and creativity. There are constant opportunities and limitless challenges, all of which take place under the constant guidance of our expert teaching staff who will nurture, enlighten, and motivate your children towards new and interesting goals.
In a typical week of Explorer Camp a child will participate in the creation of film presentations, newspaper articles, computers and other specialty topics. The schedule is flexible and will be altered to accommodate theme days, guests and group presentations.

Your child will travel to Fairfield beach or another local venue every Thursday /Wednesday (Weather Permitting). The Bus will leave the ECC at approximately 9:15am and return just in time for lunch on most trips. Our counselors will keep a watchful eye on the children as they engage in swimming, beach sports and games while enjoying the sun. Please make sure they have applied plenty of Sun Block at home to protect them from sunburn. Our counselors are not allowed to apply this during camp so please make sure they are protected. If you prefer your child to stay at the ECC, than we will have other activities facilitated by our counselors that will be run onsite to entertain them until the other group returns. (The ECC must meet the minimum number of sign-ups necessary to run the trips. Please register in advance.)
