“Program is so different than most other camps. It makes me want to be a kid again! Can I be a Boston Explorer?”
— Parent

  • 2 snacks and lunch every day

How Financial Aid is determined: Once a child is accepted into the program, they are eligible for financial aid based on need. No child will be turned away because of an inability to pay. As a non-profit organization, Boston Explorers is committed to providing opportunity to all children, regardless of financial resources. We do, however, expect families to contribute whatever they can toward their child’s experience. We will be happy to consult with you regarding our sliding scale plan. In order to be considered for financial aid, families must complete the financial aid section of the application. Upon receipt, families will be notified within one week on the status of their application and financial aid eligibility .
