Camp isn’t a place, it’s a feeling

MDA Virtual Explorers is an online program that will bring the magic of camp to campers and other kids from our community, from wherever we are, to wherever you are!


Camp will be offered in one-week sessions (Monday-Thursday). Activities will include art & crafts projects, scavenger hunts, a virtual escape room, and more! For most activities, campers and families can participate at whatever time works best.

The virtual ‘home’ for the MDA Explorers program will be an online platform – Microsoft Teams – but it will also include many DIY activities that will be shared in an electronic packet ahead of your week of camp. We are SO excited – we hope you are too!
