Little Explorers Discovery School Summer Camps
At Little Explorers, children will engage in a summer camp experience where imagination is encouraged through open- ended loose materials exploration, art creations, STEM activities, creative movement, music, stories and lots of outdoor discovery play!
Teachers will utilize our Reggio-inspired approach to education to meet the children's interests and development with provocations and ideas to engage, inspire and extend their curiosities. Each class will take its own direction based on the interests of the children throughout each 5-week session.
All camp weeks are full! If you'd like to be added to the waitlist for individual weeks, please email us!
