Summertime safety + health at EXPLO
All EXPLO programs take place in exceedingly safe environments. The suburban college campuses where we create our special worlds for kids, teens, and tweens are watched over by campus security services around the clock, and our health center is staffed by nurses 24/7.
In order to learn and have fun, students need to know that our campus is a safe place. That’s why our live-in Resident Directors and Resident Assistants are observant and trained to respond to students’ needs, whether it’s soothing homesickness, helping iron out an interpersonal conflict, or lending a friendly ear. Our staff, including our live-in Deans, are ready to provide compassionate emotional support any time of day or night.
We maintain a health center exclusively for EXPLO use on each campus, staffed by nurses 24/7. The health center stores and administers (with some exceptions) medications. Families will be notified about any health center visit that requires off-site medical attention or an overnight stay. We do not notify families about basic first aid for scrapes and bruises, or minor ailments (e.g., an upset stomach or headache).
