Explore, create, and adventure with friends

 

At Summer Rangers, kids get swept away by the magic of Wizards and Wands, dig into Geology and prospecting, whip up culinary wonders and discover the fantastic world of Greek Mythology. Each camp follows a live-action story line, complete with characters who pop in and out of the portal to help campers understand and experience the themes first-hand. It’s all about engagement as kids follow along, try and predict what’s next and take a lead role themselves.

 

The final day of each camp is a special treat-  a kid-driven finale where campers teach attendees all that they’ve learned.  You’ll be surprised and impressed by the skill and enthusiasm with which they share their new knowledge with others!
