Quiet moments and forever memories at Great Ex Summer Camp

Making friends is such a special part of camp.

Our short, fun summer is over. Even though Great Explorations stays busy with our year round Early Explorations Preschool, our Stay & Play after school program and general museum visitation, with camp over we have had a moment to reflect on all of the exciting exploring and discovering we did together this summer.

As you know from reading this blog, our young explorers had amazing experiences both at the museum and on our weekly field trips. Our campers also have daily play time in the museum's hands-on exhibits, and these everyday moments are another thing that makes camp at Great Explorations such an energizing and creative experience.

Free time is an opportunity to get creative and get to know each other better.

Our camp curriculum also allows for campers to choose activities to do during quiet time. With the support of Creative Pinellas and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, we are able to offer materials that allow creative expression, teamwork, and the opportunity to develop skills and make memories to last a lifetime.

Stay tuned next week for a collection of highlights and feedback from campers and counselors!
