Like our Mini Adventure Camp during the summer, the Mini Explorers program is a fun way to get kids active outdoors during the school year.

Geared towards elementary school kids in 1st through 3rd grade, this program focuses on having fun outdoors; the whole point is to have a good time outside.  The kids get to sample lots of outdoor activities with experienced adults, see first-hand some of our local habitat, and mix in some fun treats (think ice cream sundaes).

We designed the Mini Explorers program because we feel that all kids should have the opportunity to experience the Lowcountry outdoors; we want all kids to learn the healthy values of spending time outdoors, learn to play on their own, and learn to appreciate the beauty of our natural environment.
