What is the Explorers Club? We are a small group that is dedicated to helping children, ages 8-13 succeed, through camps, workshops and hands-on activities. Using: · Creative Thinking · Problem Solving · Idea Sharing · Teamwork · Collaboration · Observation Skills We learn how the people of the world around us live, work and play. Each year in the summer we explore a different country, solve a Mystery, and build with Math or try some “cool science stuff. “ “Entertaining greatly while educating gently,” is why the Explorer’s Club is a fun and exciting place for kids to be.
Studies: We discover the worlds arts, lifestyles, cultures, and mysteries of the past. Hands -on projects and activities help bring the world’s cultures to life.
Reading: Up for a Mystery? We solve mysteries by following the clues. deciphering codes and finding evidence. Our junior detectives learn to be good observers and pay attention to details.
Math: We build with Math in our workshop, teaching the kids why math is important in our life every day. Math is all around us.
Science: Our Inventors Camp teaches trial and error, what works, and persistence. “It is not failures, it is successes towards achievement.” we also have “That’s so cool” science stuff.
Engineering Mystery Bag Challenge and Strategy Building: During the school year, on every 4th Saturday our young explorers use their engineering skills and create with only, “what’s in the bag.” We plan, build, and test each engineers invention. It’s loads of fun and a learning experience. We’ve made marble runs, balloon powered vehicles, pom pom launchers and even cardboard furniture. Young Engineers use everyday items you would just throw away, but they really work. Every 4th Saturday, each Month., Starting Jan 28th.
