Exploration Day Camp is the ultimate superhero experience.  At camp, our campers select 1 major and 1 minor each week in sports, technology and the arts, with activities, games, and events geared towards awesome superhero themes.  Discovering your inner Superhero is a great way to get our campers excited about learning, events, and having fun at camp!  Get active with superhero sports, learn how to make superhero tech and accessories to boost your super powers, or design and customize your very own superhero logo and cape.  These are just a few of the 100+ enrichment activities we have planned for camp this summer!  Check our schedule of majors and minors, plus their descriptions to learn more!

Families have the option of purchasing lunch or packing lunch for their child.

If a child has a food allergy, the child’s family is required to pack lunch each day for this child, and lunch may not be purchased through camp.  Our third party food service vendors are not able to guarantee that the lunches are free from food allergens and/or free from any cross contamination.

Camp families may purchase a catered lunch from our third party vendor for $38/week on each family’s Lavner Camps account, or camp families may pack a lunch for their child.  If purchasing a catered lunch, families must do so through their online account no later than the Friday prior to the camp week.  Lavner Camps is a “Nut-Aware” camp as defined on our General Information webpage, and while our caterer provides some “Nut-Aware” options on our camp menu, the caterer is not nut free and meals may contain traces of nut product.


For the safety of our campers, we are a Nut-Aware camp.  Please do not send any nut products to camp with your child.  While we are a “Nut-Aware” camp, we cannot guarantee a nut-free environment.
