Explorers at Camp Knickerbocker

This program is intended for youth ages 5 and 6 years old. Explorers enjoy the traditional day camp setting with participation in all that Camp Knickerbocker has to offer. Field trips will be taken each week, as well as a once a week sailing lesson at the Boothbay Yacht Club. Explorer campers must be toilet trained. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

Explorers are assigned a unit for each week and will travel together rather than have personalized schedules. All campers in the Explorer groups will have the opportunity to particpate in swim lessons, arts & crafts, nature exploration, hiking, sports, nutrition, gardening, sailing at the Yacht Club, and more! Each group will consist of 12 friends.

Summer Discovery at the Boothbay Region Y

Summer Discovery at the Child Enrichment Center at the BRYMCA provides the perfect place for young minds to play, experiment, learn and grow through a variety of developmentally appropriate activities.  Children will thrive with lots of outdoor time, field trips, our summer art curriculum, weekly swim lessons, and music and movement classes.  The emphasis will be on fun learning as children discover everything that’s great about summer.
