Boston Explorers combines the best of summer camp—creative, spontaneous play and hands-on activities—with the sights and sounds of the city.

Campers are on the move, exploring historic and cultural sites, natural spaces, buildings and waterways.

Campers explore iconic spaces such as the Boston Harbor Islands National Park, the Freedom Trail, and the Charlestown Navy Yard (just to name a few), which encompass 43 acres and over 350 years of history. We emphasize the natural process of play and creativity, drawing on a kid’s sense of wonder to discover their neighborhoods in new and different ways. A skilled staff leads the way, but kids take command of the expeditions with their enthusiasm and imagination.
