This camp is a terrific introduction to the outdoors, teamwork and imaginative games.
The First Explorers are organized into two groups: Sharks (ages 5 and 6) and Hawks (ages 7 and 8). Both groups travel by van* to a wide variety of island locations where they participate in fun group activities and exciting adventures. Some favorites of the First Explorers include snake and salamander catching at Squam Farm, fort building at the State and Bamboo Forests, games at Lily Pond and Quaise, turtling in Madaket, rock climbing at the Strong Wings base camp and swimming at harbor and north shrore beaches. Wherever they go, this camp promises to provide excitement and adventure to all of its students!
All First Explorers are dropped off and picked up each day by the picnic tables in front of the Strong Wings building at 9 Nobadeer Farm Road. Groups are limited to between 10 and 13 campers, with at least two counselors per van.
*First Explorers DO NOT use bikes.
