Where real life +
imagination make magic
A new kind of summer program in New York
To make summer magic we combine art, science, whimsy, and sparkle to create activities, trips and downtime that help you step out of your comfort zone to cross a new finish line. Fly the trapeze, chill in the ‘ville (Bronxville) with your friends, bike along the Hudson River, or bring your A-game at Chelsea Piers Sports Complex. Every EXPLO day is a chance to do something new.
You do you
Dream it, live it at EXPLO. Your days and nights are full of summer fun and wonder. Choose activities that you’re actually into—and try it all in a judgment-free zone. From workshops and electives to clubs, leagues, activities, and trips, you pick what interests you—and decide how to spend your downtime.
EXPLO days just feel right
Start the day with friends—but not too early! You’ll have time to meet up at breakfast or outside on the lawn before workshops begin at 9:00am. Why the later start? Because science. That’s your brain’s auto-start time! Afternoons are filled with electives, clubs, leagues, activities, and Flex Time to inspire your creativity and connect you with friends.
I'm also taking go-cart making, which is a whole other ball game. I'm in this group of four and we're making our own go-cart and it's coming along really well. I'm having so much fun. On Friday we're going to race them and it's just unbelievable. I've never done anything like this before and it's just a whole new experience.
