Explorers (Entering Grades 1-5)

Faith, Fun, and Friends!

Explorers are our youngest campers, and many are new to the Cho-Yeh experience! We’re committed to creating a safe and engaging experience for every Explorer, ensuring that each camper is surrounded by new friends and attentive counselors who will guide them through their daily schedule.

They’ll quickly develop their self-confidence as they learn foundational truths of God’s story, and build friendships that often last a lifetime! We hear it all the time:

Camp Friends are the Best Friends!

And some of the kindest friends your camper will make are our exceptional counselors! These college-age leaders serve as loving role models, showing kindness and compassion as they help even the most timid campers realize they can survive – and even THRIVE - away from the comforts and routines of home. 

Campers will also participate in a series of interactive Bible Studies, which help younger campers understand who God is, and that He always keeps his promises.

“My child has been able to grow and learn in a safe, Christian environment where she feels loved and accepted for who she is. The counselors are excellent role models and she looks forward to keeping up with them and her new friends after camp.” – Camper Parent
