Mini Explorers Club 
(3-4 years)

This half-day program is packed with adventure, play, friendships and plenty of space for little imaginations to run wild in the great outdoors. Each week has a different mountain theme and all adventures are enhanced by games, stories and crafts to maximize fun.

Our Mini Explorers club drop-off and collect at the base of Grouse Mountain. To ensure safe, enjoyable, learning we have a strict ratio of 1 Camp Leader to every 4 Campers. Each session Campers will be provided with a healthy snack and juice.

Can my child be in the same group as a friend or sibling? We understand that keeping your child with their friend for camp is important and will do our best to accommodate all requests. To help us organize camp groups, please email guestservices@grousemountain.com with the name of the campers and the dates of camp a minimum of 5 days before you camp date. Please note that camp groups are arranged by age. If friends are different ages, we will move the older child to the younger group.
