Explorer Campaigns

The Explorer Campaign is an initiative implemented by Agents of Discovery across different regions of North America, where organizations have bound together with the common goal of getting youth outdoors, active, and exploring their cities, states, or provinces.

To play, kids become Secret Agents on a Mission to visit participating parks, museums, zoos, and cultural sites. With every Mission completed, kids earn exclusive digital and real-world rewards. The more Missions completed, the more rewards earned!
