Working at Explorations


Explorations Camp was founded in 1982 by a group of McGill University Educational Psychology Professors. Founding goals included research on “giftedness,” the development of a model program and a general support for teacher education in a camp which engaged children in a rich learning environment and where learning and fun were synonymous. Activities continue to be led by certified teachers who are specialists in the fields of mathematics, fine arts, technology and media, science, music, physical education, environmental studies, and early childhood education. The camp also engages local senior High School and College students who participate as Camp Assistants.

Explorations is currently expanding its programs and new offerings to include International Teaching Opportunities and Weekend Programs. We are looking for passionate, dynamic educators and assistants to be part of our growing team and community. At Explorations, we believe that empowered educators are the cornerstone of a meaningful learning experience and in recognition of this, we offer our instructional team and support staff great working conditions and compensation.
