Join the adventure this summer with the Rochester Explorers Club! Kids of all ages are invited to get outdoors and explore everything that our community has to offer. The Downtown Rochester Development Authority (DDA) has assembled an amazing array of adventures for young explorers, including a firefly hunt, making a fairy house, and everything in between.

Kids can pick up their free Explorers Club Kit during Sidewalk Sales, July 9 – 11 at the DDA Information Booth, located at the corner of Fourth & Main. The Kit will include the Official Adventure Guide, with over 30 activities to choose from. Complete each activity and bring proof to the sponsoring Explorer Station to receive a special activity badge, unique to that activity. Explorers will have from July 9 – August 8 to complete their activities.
