Camp Explore, an affordable youth summer camp offered by Tahoe Family Solutions, is scheduled fro June 29 to Aug. 7 this summer.

Meaningful, fun and active outdoor activities that get kids away from the TV and outdoors is what Camp Explore is all about — registration has opened and applications are being accepted for all staff positions.

Camp Explore is open to all children in first- through fifth-grades, regardless of economic ability, and sliding fee rates are available for families that qualify.

Running 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Incline Elementary School, Camp Explore will include activities such as overnight camping, paddleboarding, hiking, environmental stewardship days, and even a multi-night backpacking trip for the fifth-grade campers.

All activities are focused on education, leadership development, nature appreciation, and, of course, fun.

To register your children, visit or call 775-298-0004 and speak to Camp Director Sharon Silva.

Staff positions are available at Camp Explore, including Assistant Camp Director, Trip Leader, Counselor, and Camp Cook. To apply, visit and download a staff application.

Community support for Camp Explore helps to ensure this program is affordable to all children who wish to attend. To make a tax deductible contribution, visit
