Exploration Place Travel CampsWe’re Packing Up Camps and Bringing Them to You!

This summer, Exploration Place is hosting a series of camps at local community partner sites. Campers will build their own race car using building bricks, master their own free-throw trick shot and build a bobsled. They will compete for the highest score in a mini hockey challenge, illuminate their own future city, design their own dream home and create robotic animal sidekicks.

Members save $35 per child, per week.

If the camp that you are wanting is not in the list during registration, please join the waitlist and we will contact you if space becomes available.

Travel Camp FAQs

General Questions
Behavior Guidance and Parent Information
  • What are the behavior guidance and discipline policies for camp?

    Exploration Place’s philosophy of discipline is based on respect for each participant’s self-worth, sensible behavior boundaries with age-appropriate consequences, and encouraging youth to manage their own behavior.

    All participants are expected to show respect for themselves and others; consideration for their own and others’ property; and to participate in the group activities.

    As you prepare for your child to attend camp, please read the Parent Information and Policies.

    If you have concerns about the quality of care, policies, or procedures, please contact the Director of Education at 316.660.0612.
