Germantown Friends School
31 W COULTER ST
Explorer Camp blends traditional summertime fun with opportunities for campers to explore areas of personal interest, hone their problem solving and teamwork skills, and develop lasting friendships. The daily schedule features art, craft, and science projects; daily swimming; music, drama, cooking, and movement as well as frequent excursions to the Wissahickon. In addition, each week includes a dynamic guest speaker or a field trip to a theme-related destination. The theme for week one is: Exploring the Land of Make Believe! Join us on a weeklong adventure to such magical places as Neverland, Oz, Narnia, and Arendelle, and where we will meet beloved characters from classic literary tales by Hans Cristian Anderson, Roald Dahl, and Frank Baum and from the imaginations of Pixar’s animators. Campers will work together to design a mural map of the Land of Make Believe, act out skits and puppet shows of some of their favorite stories, and not only do fun experiments with Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Bean, but also whip up a batch of Everlasting Gobstoppers and snozzcumbers. The fun will be limitless as we visit magical castles, enchanted forests, and even Willy Wonka’s factory!
