Explorer Day Camp is an enrichment summer camp where children ages 4-14 grow and develop through sports, art, music, science and more. We empower campers to build their OWN camp program. The campers thank us later.

Explorer Day Camp offers a variety of subjects to awaken your child’s many interests. Campers explore individual talents, try new activities, make new friends, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

Campers will enjoy access to the high-quality facilities and fields of Forest Hills High School and will have the opportunity to swim daily at the exclusive Bay Terrace Pool Club.

Building their own day camp program on a weekly basis, campers will choose from two activities for each period – swimming, soccer, arts, science, wildlife, strategy games, tennis, music, and much more! With “Discovery Day” field trips and other camp-wide events, no curious mind is left behind. 

Prices include transportation and a delicious Glatt Kosher lunch.

Extended care is available for additional fees.
