The Explore St. Louis Summer Camp (ESSC) is on hold until further notice. We want to insure that everyone is safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. Until we are advised from our state government, the ESSC will be on hold.
We serve campers age 5-13. ESSC is a day camp that is open from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM, weekly fee is $125.00. We are currently working on a sliding scale and accepting state assistance payments.
Before Care is from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM. After Care is from 4:00 pm to 6:00 PM, fee is $10 per hour. The ESSC Enrollment Applications will open up in May, 2020. Only the first 60 applications will be accepted. All parents/guardians must attend orientation.
ESSC campers get to explore different attractions, shows, exhibits, programs, other community events, and other places throughout St. Louis that is outside of their neighborhoods.
We are excited to provide campers with tutoring/mentoring, Arts & Craft, S.T.E.M., DYI projects, financial education, computer enhancement skills, nutritional and health education, painting, cooking classes, swimming, and of course tutoring. Breakfast and lunches are provided, so no need to pack a lunch. .
