Our Approach

Explorer Summer Kids’ Camps is an English international summer camp for children aged 7 – 17 with Juniors (7-9), Tween (10-12) and Senior (13-17) programs.

We focus on providing a fun, exciting summer experience in English that helps children discover new talents and interests, builds self-esteem and confidence and gives them the opportunity to establish lifelong global friendships.

No books. No classrooms. No lectures. No boredom. No phones!    Just real-life English in real-life situations with real-life FUN!

Lunch and Dinner

Self-service buffet that will always include a starter (usually soup), a main, and a dessert. All meals are prepared using home-grown ingredients found locally. The restaurant takes great pride in creating wonderful menus for those with special dietary needs such as vegetarians, gluten free campers etc.


On top of the three delicious meals provided every day, snacks are given between breakfast and lunch. We believe it's important that our campers have a healthy diet especially considering how active they are during their time with us. Campers will have a choice for snacks of fresh fruit, bread, cheese, pastries, juices.
