Beam in the spotlight and show us your dance moves! Campers will get their bodies moving and let the beat move their feet. Our days will include motivational movement, interactive dance games, and exploring new and classic songs. Our campers will find true love for the magic of music and be sure to entertain as they come home with new performances. 

The Junior Explorers Club

Our Garden is growing and so are your children, we have created the next generation of Kids Garden, the Junior Explorers’ Club. For children ages 6-12 yrs old. We have opened a school age center directly behind Kids Garden. Your Registration, Membership and Packages work at both locations! Then we are taking this concept a step further and bring nature and adventure into the program. We’re built on the belief that exploration is learning, and that nature provides boundless opportunities for children to discover, explore and strengthen some of their most important skills. With the knowledge we hold as licensed educators, we’re doing what we always do – brainstorm the best ways to support our families here at Kids Garden. And we’re doing just that with our Junior Explorers’ Club. We’ve got options for four different approaches to learning this year: After-school Program, Hang Out Fridays, Outdoor Day Camp and Schools Out Camps throughout the year. 

We know that nature play…

  • Decreases stress and encourages mindfulness
  • Stimulates creativity and problem-solving skills
  • Encourages responsibility, independence and imagination
  • Hands-on and sensory learning opportunities abound
  • Understanding of and appreciation for our planet

Our Mission at Junior Explorers Club is to inspire and empower children through creative, educational play. Going on adventures in and around town, we’ll learn valuable wilderness skills and develop essential life skills. We know these skills will help develop children’s self-esteem, promote teamwork and friendship, and develop a sense of community and belonging. Unplugged from electronics and plugged into the natural world around us, our various programs will let children discover more of the great outdoors in the company of exceptional leaders.

Outdoor Day Camp

Our Outdoor Day Camp offers parents daily and weekly themed camps all summer long. It’s here that Junior Explorers will be transported by bus to local parks, hiking trails, mountain beaches, farms, local area attractions, and experiences real life learning in the great outdoors! These camps are weekly themed camps, and range in theme and explorational learning themes. The goal of Outdoor Junior Explorer Camps is to unplug from the world, and reconnect in nature!
