Camp Exploration

Summer: Explorers' Experience Overnight Camp

>> With our many magnificent camp considerations, we only schedule some of them for any given summer. Please, though, do contact us to express your interest in a particular program that does not seem to be scheduled as you would like.

The Explorers' Experience is especially for the child who wants to get away for a week and do something different each day. Campers will get to enjoy various adventures.

Possible day hikes include Agua Blanca, Chilao Devil's Canyon, Condor Peak, Devil's Punchbowl, Echo Mountain, Fillmore Trail, La Tuna Canyon, Los Pinetos, Mount Lukens, Mount Wilson, Placerita Canyon, Rocky Peak, Santa Anita Canyon, Sespe Creek, Towsley Canyon, Trail Canyon Falls, Vasquez Rocks, Zzyzyx Trail, etc.

Other possible day excursions could be to Antelope Valley Indian Museum, Calico Ghost Town, Edwards Air Force Base, Farm Sanctuary, Fillmore-Western Railway, The Gibbon Conservation Center, Ice Station, Milestones of Flight Air Museum, Mojave Preserve, Mountasia, The Nethercutt Collection Automotive Museum, The Pacific Ocean, The Reagan Presidential Library, Skateland, The Wildlife Way Station, The World's Tallest Thermometer, etc.

While we may spend our days out and about, we will ultimately be back in our cabin each night for a good night’s sleep. Our cabin is at a rustic but well equipped campsite in Soledad Canyon.

We will make some of our healthy, conscious meals at our cabin and others we will make at various venues we visit. We will enjoy roasting marshmallows, making smores, and snacking on a multitude of healthy, conscious goodies. For those of us who like to eat and like to eat well, we will always have plenty of good choices available.

Campers may also decide together to spend time at our campsite enjoying the opportunities available to us there. Enjoyment at the camp site may include badminton, basketball, board games, crafts, foosball, frisbee, hiking, hockey, horseshoes, karaoke, miniature golf, ping pong, playground, song sessions, stargazing, swimming, tennis, volleyball, etc.

We may tell some stories in our cabin or by the fire - positive, uplifting, inspirational stories - not ghost stories! We do not believe in telling stories that are designed to scare and create insecurity. Camp Exploration has always been focused on nothing but the most positive of values. We are especially focused on helping campers build their self-esteem, their positive relations with others, and their understanding of their important role in the world. Even with the songs we sing – at the campsite, in the van, and sometimes even in any random place we are – we are conscious of the lyrics and messages. No matter where we are and what we are doing, Camp Exploration is fully focused on helping our campers grow to become more conscious and caring human beings.

The Explorers’ Experience will truly be a wonderful week away for the child who loves to get out and explore and experience.
