||EXPLO — Exploration Summer Programs
||For more than 30 years, EXPLO has brought together bright, curious, and interesting young people from around the globe. Since then, EXPLO has grown into three separate programs: EXPLO at Yale, on the campus of Yale University for students entering grades 10 through 12; EXPLO at Wellesley on the campus of Wellesley College for students entering grades 8 and 9; and EXPLO at Wheaton, on the campus of Wheaton College for students entering grades 4 through 7.

My son attended Exploration summer program (explo.org) last summer in Massachusetts. While not specifically for gifted kids, it's very well suited to gifted kids. It seems to excel at giving the kids an opportunity to learn about new things in creative ways, while also providing social opportunities and encouraging independence. I'd highly recommend the program.

I went to "explo" and had a blast!!! I realy enjoyed all of the RAs, who were people from all over the world, and the ability to choose what you want to do each day! I must say that this was without a doubt the best three weeks of my life and I will always try to return! I just wish that everybody could exprience this extraordinary summer camp.

My child attended this camp during the 2007 season and had a great time. Unfortunately, it was not possible to have a dialogue with a dean who initially refused us access to the Director. When we finally had access to the Director she was very professional and it was possible to have a meaningful discussion with her about a certain situation.
