Explorer Summer Camps & Programs for Kids in the Bay Area

Summer 2024 will not host this curriculum but we hope to host it at a later date! 


At Camp Brainy Bunch's Exciting Explorer camp, your child will have a passport to fun and learning! Incorporating geography games, map skills, reading, and writing experiences, our newest camp will guarantee your camper will "go around the world in five days" and will come home to you each evening ready to share their new adventures in far-off lands both real and imagined. 


Visit the curriculum tab below for more details!


Rising 1st-2nd graders

Your young explorer will work on the essential skills to read and write like an explorer as they discover the world around them. Each day, campers will investigate what an explorer needs and will go on adventures using these items. Throughout the week, campers will create an Explorer Guidebook to display their expertise and teach other explorers how to travel and discover with confidence!

Rising 3rd-4th graders

Our explorers will compete in Amazing Adventures, completing challenges and solving problems around the world. They will learn about and travel to far off countries while exploring their curiosity and creative problem-solving skills. Throughout the week, campers will learn about physical and human geography as they travel from country to country. If they complete the challenge in a country, they receive a stamp on their passport and advance to the next location! The week will culminate with the Amazing Adventures finale, where they will showcase their geographical and explorer skills!

Rising 5th-6th graders

Our oldest explorers will compete in Amazing Adventures, completing challenges and solving problems around the world. They will learn about and travel to far off countries while exploring their curiosity and creative problem-solving skills. Throughout the week, campers will learn about physical and human geography as they travel from country to country. If they complete the challenge in a country, they receive a stamp on their passport and advance to the next location! The week will culminate with the Amazing Adventures finale, where they will showcase their geographical and explorer skills!

* Please note that 3rd-6th graders share some of the same activities and curriculum that vary in complexity and challenge.
