​Overview

​​​Summer Explorations is designed to engage our campers in learning and exploring through summer camp workshops that emphasize hands-on experiences and lots of fun!

Experienced teachers, administrators, and teaching interns provide classroom instruction and supervised activities. The program is held on the beautiful Lower School campus in Forty Fort, Pennsylvania.

Enrolled campers may attend a morning session, an afternoon session, or both. Campers can enroll for one, two, or all three weeks. Summer Explorations is designed to be as flexible as you need for all your summer plans.
