Coastal Explorers

Coastal Explorers is a summer day camp for middle-school-aged students.

Important Notice: Read Prior to Camp Registration for 2020!

Past Due Balances from 2020: If you have an outstanding balance from the 2020 summer camp season, your child/camper is not eligible to register for camp this year until the account is paid in full. If you attempt to register your child without paying the 2020 balance in full, they will be removed from the 2021 camp register.

CampDoc Camper Profile Completion Requirement: ALL CampDoc camper profiles must be 100% complete within two (2) weeks following the registration of your camper(s). If you have not completed each camper's profile, your account will be deactivated for the 2021 summer camp season and you will lose both your registration fee and the reservations you had for the weeks selected.

Camper Photo Requirement: Please add a photo of each camper to their profile.  This will be helpful to us when implementing the electronic sign-in and sign-out procedures.

Everyone must have a debit/credit card on file in CampDoc. Please note that if payment is not received by the Friday before your child/camper's week of camp, we will charge your card for the week's balance due. If any card is declined there will be a $25.00 service fee added to your camper's account.


Online registration begins on March 22, 2021, and will continue until the last week of camp, August 2 - 6th, 2021. All withdrawals and schedule changes must be made by Monday, May 3, 2021.
