Important Notice Regarding COVID-19

Explorations’ primary responsibility is ensuring the safety and wellbeing our our community of learners, leaders and staff. Our leadership team is monitoring the current situation closely and will be provide our community with ongoing updates regarding Explorations 2020 Summer Camp.

We are working closely with our host school and our custodial service provider to ensure all measures are in place to offer Explorations Summer Camp in a safe, clean environment. Furthermore, we understand that many of our community members are hesitant to make summer plans given the uncertainty this outbreak has created. With that in mind, Explorations is waiving all cancellation fees for our programs and will accept cancellations until July 1st.

To adjust to COVID-19, we are restructuring our intermediate and senior camp format to ensure camper safety. This summer, our campers will remain in one set educational stream instead of choosing three individual activities. This structuring is to enforce physical distancing rules by minimizing travel times and avoiding physical contact.
