Frequently Asked Questions

When does camp begin/end?

Explorer Camp activities begin at 8:00am each day and end at 5:00pm. We are unable to allow early pick-ups because we cannot guarantee when campers will return from their daily off campus activities.

Daily camp drop-off and pick-up is at Peak Adventures.  We’re located at Sac State, find us here.

What if my child is close to the age range?
