YOU

DARE TO BE

Everyone asks you what you want to be when you grow up. At EXPLO, we’re more interested in who you want to be — and making it reality. Design a video game, rig a sailboat, negotiate trade deals, organize a fashion show, pitch a business, deliver a speech, play a guitar, spike a volleyball, or investigate forensic evidence at a mock crime scene. EXPLO offers you the chance to branch out, encouraging you to become more self-confident and creative. But that’s not even the best part — it’s the fun and friends that will make EXPLO the most memorable summer of your life.

Learn. Explore. Be yourself. Definitely that’s what I learned to do here. Jess H. | STUDENT

At EXPLO, learning starts with doing. Engineer a Mars rover or present a case to the Supreme Court. Write an Emmy-worthy sitcom or design your dream house. Manage a stock portfolio or perfect your suturing skills. With more than 75 courses and electives to choose from, the opportunities are boundless. OUR ACADEMICS ARE FAR FROM STANDARD

We believe that students should drive their own learning — so hop in the driver’s seat and choose what you’ll explore:

Acting for Stage + Screen Espionage + Deductive Reasoning Architecture

World of New York Figure Drawing + Portraiture Short Story Writing Off-Road Vehicle Design Chemistry in Action The Science of Cooking A Cappella Archery

Cartooning + Comics International Law + Diplomacy Dodgeball Engineering Challenges Graffiti Art Interior Decorating

Probability in Poker Treasure Hunting + Orienteering Summer Spa: Hair + Face Intro to Dungeons + Dragons Ultimate Frisbee Video Editing

SARAH LAWRENCE COLLEGE

The Best of Both Worlds Tucked alongside the tree-lined village of Bronxville, N.Y., Sarah Lawrence is a 44-acre wooded campus in Westchester County, one of New York’s most sought-after areas to raise a family. A short walk to Bronxville (a former artist’s colony) and 30 minutes to Manhattan make Sarah Lawrence the “Best of Both Worlds” — a private, safe suburban oasis with the rich culture and unending excitement of the world’s most recognized city within arm’s reach. As summer residents at Sarah Lawrence, EXPLO students will have access to a wide majority of the college’s facilities and resources, including:

ȫ Air-conditioned classrooms and meeting spaces ȫ Two quads ȫ Modern dorms and dining facilities ȫ The Barbara Walters Student Center ȫ Art studios and performance spaces, including an outdoor amphitheater ȫ A student gym and swimming pool

FUN

SERIOUSLY

The earth may be round, but there are countless corners to explore. There are scores of stones and stories to turn over; oceans and ideas to plumb the depths of. For more than four decades, we have pioneered summer

programs that combine the best aspects of summer — freedom, fun, and friends — with hands-on experiential learning that helps students discover strengths and interests that light them up. At EXPLO, students take charge of their learning and chart their own course. Your “what ifs?” become “and thens!” Everything you imagine is met with “Yes, and…” instead of “not right now.” Why? Because there is adventure and opportunity around every corner if you’re willing to seek it. And we happen to believe that life is a whole lot more interesting and exciting when you do.
