How are the children grouped during Explore Camp? Can my children who are different ages stay together?
Children are all in the same classroom and grouped in teams by age, which allows us to academically challenge each group appropriately. However, there is often some overlap. While we cannot guarantee they will be together, we do our best to accommodate the request. In situations where there is a large age gap, the older child will be grouped with the younger child.
Can my child walk from the parking lot to the museum by themselves?
No. An adult is required to accompany all Explore campers to the classroom, sign them in, and sign them out at the end of the day.
