Boston Explorers combines the best of summer camp—creative, spontaneous play and hands-on activities—with the sights and sounds of the city. Campers ages 9-14 are on the move, visiting historic sites, natural spaces, buildings and waterways.
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.
This coed day camp is especially designed for the unique experience of urban exploration: City sites and thoroughfares, monuments, gardens, and waterways are the campgrounds, the skyline and harbor its backdrop.
A day at camp is made up of two essential creative components. Every day children will explore a different part of the city, from a different perspective—from the tops of buildings, at sea level, offshore, and on foot. And every day, campers will work with their hands.
Our hope is to inspire a sense of adventure and curiosity that will last a lifetime.
