First Explorers

Three Children at the Beach

Ages 5-8

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 shore beaches.

Groups are limited to between 8 and 10 campers, with at least two counselors per group.
