Morning Group Activities
Our morning group activities are tailored to meet campers’ needs and encourage them to take risks and to accept new challenges. Above all they’re designed to be a lot of fun, challenging children to step outside of their comfort zones while enjoying a truly international atmosphere.
Each group is required to participate in the activity together, building a closer bond and greater sense of teamwork amongst them. It’s important that the campers learn how to support others during the session, as not all will be on the same level.
White Water Rafting
Tweens and Teens: Campers challenged on class 1 – 3 grade rapids with two to three per raft. A three hour paddle aimed at growing teamwork, communication, and having a lot of fun. Seperate Tween and Teen trips, never together.
Juniors: Younger campers enjoy an introduction to rafting with a 2 hour raft down a fast flowing river with some basic grade 1 rapids. There are approximately six to eight campers per raft.
Tweens and Teens
Deep in the forest a two to three hour team activity designed to build teamwork, communication, and decision making. All participants wear safety gear, while the whole activity is overseen by both activity staff and camp staff also. Seperate Tween and Teen trips, never together. This is an afternoon choice activity only!
Junior and Tweens ONLY
A day trip away from the camp base where small groups of 7-8 enjoy cross-country riding through forests, fields, and rivers. An hour long trip plus horse and an additional carriage ride. At the end the campers have a BBQ lunch on-site.
Stand Up Paddling
A new activity to Explorer camps with SUPing being an amazing way to explore the nearbye Kolpa River. Juniors and Tweens will only have to go 500m away from the camp to experience the thrills on a board, while the teens will take a longer trip to a more open place where they’ll spend over 2 hours testing their skills on the water.
A unique new activity where campers can go biking but with a difference. Kick biking is a wonderful safe way to experience the nearbye nature.
A new activity for Explorer Camps and an incredible way to enjoy the Kolpa River and just spend time with your friends. A 2 – 3 hour trip along rapids and straight stretches of the river, it’s non-stop fun and excitement.
Zip Lining and Giant Swing
An on-site activity which is a great introduction to the adrenaline side of camps for all our campers. Two zip lines, and a five metre drop in the Giant Swing. Some ages will have the option to do it in the morning, however all campers can do this every day in the choice afternoon activities.
Forest Adventure Park
2 Week Tween & Teen Campers ONLY
Set in tree-tops of a nearbye forest, a two – three hour fun filled experience for all campers. There are 18 different stations, 4 ziplines, 2 different routes and a lot of fun and action. Afternoon choice only!
At Explorer Camps you choose how to fill your afternoons and evenings. With so many activities to pick from, you’re bound to find things you love to do as well as things you’ve never tried–or even heard of!
Campers have the opportunity to choose activities together so that they stay with friends, however at all times they’re challenged to try something new and to step beyond their comfort zones. At any given time they can choose to change activities, or even suggest a new one as our camps really are camper centred.
