How to reserve a program
Information about Explorit's programs, fee assistance opportunities, and the cancellation policy.
Reservations for all group programs must be made at least two weeks in advance. Some programs have particularly busy seasons, so please reserve programs as early as possible to make sure we can fully accommodate your needs.
Please note: A reservation by phone or online form is only a request. A reservation should not considered final until you receive a written confirmation letter from Explorit.

Explorit offers a limited number of free or reduced fee programs. Groups demonstrating significant financial need may apply for fee assistance from Explorit's Sassenrath Fund. Call 530.756.0191 for more information on fee assistance opportunities or use the online form.
Teachers, principals, after school program providers and even parent representatives are welcome to apply.
Both full and partial scholarships are available for schools or groups demonstrating financial need. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, so don't delay in filling out our easy to use online form.
Approvals for fee assistance are limited by availability and must be made separate from the program reservation application process. Programs fill up quickly so we encourage you to send in your fee assistance application soon and make your program reservation once you receive notification.
