EXPLORERS is a club for gifted children and their families. 

Gifted children can make friends with others of their own age and ability in a comfortable environment.

Parents of gifted children can also meet and share experiences.

One child accepted means the whole family can enjoy club activities.

Explorers is the Auckland Branch of the national body, New Zealand Association for Gifted Children (NZAGC).

We are a nonprofit organisation and run entirely by volunteers.
