About Us

Who we are

Welcome to Explorations

Explorations was founded in 1981 by a group of McGill University Professors. Founding goals included research on “giftedness,” the development of a model program and a general support for teacher education — a camp which engaged children in a rich learning environment and where learning and fun were synonymous. Activities continue to be led by certified teachers who are specialists in the fields of mathematics, fine arts, technology and media, science, music, physical education, environmental studies and early childhood education. The camp also engages local senior High School and College students who participate as Camp Assistants. Many are former Explorations campers.

Children are grouped by age and interests. Exposure to guest “experts” and participation in field trips further enrich this unique camp experience. Our Panorama Programs include visits with local scientists, universities, hospitals and private labs. Our newly established partnership with McGill Physics will feature hands-on engagement with McGill Graduate students.
