Held inside the Early Learning Centers (ELCs) of our branches in Andover and Wichita (East and South) – our Junior Explorer Camps are designed for pre-schoolers (ages four and five) who are ready for summer adventure and are getting ready for school. Days include physical, educational, social, and developmental activities in a licensed child care environment with trained staff. Campers can also enjoy all their host Y offers including pools, outdoor water parks, and more. Full days include breakfast and healthy snacks.
