Explorers (Ages 13-16)

Our Explorers groups take on even greater adventures than our Day Trekkers and Voyagers. Campers ages 13-15 have a number of exciting two week options with a week-long/four night camping trip as part of the session! Campers leave the Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall campus with their two counselors for daily activities the first week. Day trips around greater Boston may include snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, biking, rock climbing, volunteering and the beach. They return to campus in the afternoon in time to go home at the end of the regular camp day.  Groups depart Monday of the second week for their camping trip, and return Friday afternoon.
