A home away from home
The first time sleeping away from home and family can be a hugely significant—and positive—experience. That’s why we put so much effort into getting it right! For almost 50 years, EXPLO has created magical overnight summer programs that allow for adventure, freedom to choose, and rich, imaginative play.
Social + emotional learning in a beautiful setting
You're not alone
Most sleepaway students come to EXPLO not knowing anyone—that changes fast. Kids are paired with roommates and are part of a living group with two advisors who live on the floor. They eat meals, do activities, and make friends together with their group. Often, by the end of the summer, kids feel so comfortable that they don’t want to go home!
We're there for parents, too
“Kidsickness” is real. Sending your child off to an overnight program for three weeks can be tough! Know that we’re there for you both. We will post photos of what's going on at the programs everyday and schedule phone calls home after the first week. You can send letters via snail mail or through our website, which we’ll print and deliver.
And you can always give us a call. We view the EXPLO experience as a partnership, and the best partnerships have the best communication.
