With more than 45,000 student and 3,000 faculty alumni spanning across four decades, Exploration Summer Programs' alumni base is a collective of intellectual, creative, and active learners and mentors. Our hope is to reconnect alumni with old friends, collect stories from summers past, and provide information about what a summer of Exploration can mean for a lifetime of living and learning.

We're interested in hearing your stories — about your time at Explo or about where life has taken you since. Please drop us a note about where you've been, what you've been up to, or who you've seen lately. (See "Got Notes?" to the right.)

Know a student who could benefit from a summer of Exploration? Request a viewbook for a grandchild, niece, nephew, or neighbor. And the Explo experience extends beyond students too: email a link to our faculty hiring website to someone you think would make a nurturing and enthusiastic mentor.

Each year, Exploration must purchase large quantities of materials for use by students and staff at the Programs. Items include everything from paper and pens to costumes, air conditioners, sani-wipes, plywood, pith helmets, laundry services, coffee cans, and paint. If you (or your company) have items or services that could be useful to Exploration, and you would like to inquire about the possibility of making an in-kind gift, please send an email to
