Explore! is a brand new low-cost summer program for children grades 1-6. Mornings include activities such as music, reading, art, cooking, and science. Afternoons involve fun visits to surrounding venues. Please reply by July 3rd as space is limited. Register here:
Explore! runs for two weeks, from July 8-12 and July 15-19. Campers from 1st to 6th grade can participate in one session or both. The theme of the first week is “Around the World:” campers will explore other countries—Kenya, Japan, and others—through themed activities and lessons, and the week will end right here in the USA with a trip to the Whitman Mission. In the second week, campers will explore the natural world here in Walla Walla with lessons and activities about science and ecology, trips to Rooks Park and the Pioneer Park Aviary, and even explore space with an excursion to Whitman’s Clise Planetarium to answer the question “What’s in Our World?”
Breakfast, lunch, and a snack will be provided daily. Both weeks will include trips to the Walla Walla Public Library, the Milton Freewater Pool, and will share an emphasis on reading, time outdoors, and creative expression. Campers will work with Emma, Ruby, and Noah, our summer interns from Whitman College, to showcase through writing, crafting, singing, and performing what they have learned. Each Friday, families are invited to join us for a culminating barbeque where campers will share their experience.
