Keeping Health + Safety at the Center

In a typical year, EXPLO offers both day and residential programs. In this time of COVID, we are planning with caution in mind and for now, that means minimizing coming and going from campus. It also means at this time that we cannot guarantee that we will offer weekend trips in 2021. We will continue to review the situation in the coming weeks and months and make a decision as we move close to summer.

The information below reflect’s our past year’s programming. For the most up-to-date information on our COVID-19 planning, please visit our FAQ page.


Travel to the Most Unexpected Places

EXPLO Boston trips are a fantastic opportunity for students to engage in academic and recreational adventures, to meet new friends outside of their courses and electives, and to explore exciting destinations throughout Boston, Providence, and New England. We take great pride and exceptional care in planning our trips, from researching the best and most age-appropriate locations, to organizing small, supervised groups for on-site exploring.

In one weekend, you might explore Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts before creating your own masterpiece, swing from a trapeze, compete in an EXPLO bake-off, or conquer the tallest roller coaster at Canobie Lake park.
