Summer Camp 2021

This year, Explorations celebrates 41 years of Summer Camp. Since our beginning as the McGill Summer School for the Gifted, we have stood at the forefront of immersive, experiential summer learning in Montreal. We strive to connect, inspire and empower learners and educators in a physically and emotionally safe environment where learning is fun.

Our Summer Camp is divided into two 2-week Sessions in which participants will explore, discover and challenge themselves to grow. Session 1 takes place from July 5 to July 16, and Session 2 takes place from July 19 to 30. A certified teacher or an expert educator leads each Activity and creates an environment where children and teens can discover new ideas, skills and interests, all while building lifelong friendships.
