EXPLO SeniorDay Program

Session 1: June 26 – July 13
Session 2: July 17 – August 3

You don't need to leave home to have new experiences. We bring the world to EXPLO. Whether you've traveled across the country or just a few towns, you'll find a home away from home at EXPLO.

The Most Robust Day Program Around

For almost 50 years, families have taken advantage of the tremendous value and benefits of the EXPLO day program. Day students spend the day side by side with residential students who come from across the country and from around the world. 

Day Program Overview

EXPLO Senior offers a 3-week multi-course day program where students may sample different interests; choosing from over 80 options of courses, electives, activities, clubs, and main events. Students choose 2 courses and 3 electives prior to the summer and they are designed for students that want to try something new. Each day, students are able to choose from a rotating selection of activities including free swim, a wide array of athletics, cooking, the EXPLO art studio, reading, music session, and board games — just to name a few.

Before the day comes to a close, our students can grab a spot on the Lawn for movie night, catch an outdoor magic show, laugh out loud at the stylings of an improv comedy troupe, or take to the stage themselves — the possibilities are endless. Events EXPLO has hosted in summers past include Carnival Night, EXPLO’s Got Talent, EXPLOStock Music Festival, themed dances, Game Show Night, and more!

After her first year, she came home with a new level of self-confidence. She has also thrived amidst the very diverse community that is EXPLO. While it is a significant financial commitment for our family, we feel it has been worth the expense for us. The experience has helped our daughter in how she approaches her schoolwork and what it means to be an engaged student.

Extended Day Program

With EXPLO’s extended day program, day students can be at EXPLO from morning until night each weekday. There is no need to cook dinner since students staying late will join residential students for their evening meal. For parents and caregivers, if something crops up at work or in life, EXPLO extended day is a simple and easy way to ensure your child is not only cared for and has a wonderful evening.

Every night at EXPLO we have robust programming – from activities to main events – and staying into the evening means students have the opportunity to try even more activities, watch and join in on performances, talent shows, games, and adventures. Perhaps most importantly, it provides even more time to cultivate friendships.

At EXPLO, I was given the opportunity to attend an international camp, located on a college campus. I was allowed to attend courses that I was interested in, make friends from around the world, explore different activities, and learn how to become more independent.
