Information about reserving an Explorit program, fee assistance opportunities, and the cancellation policy.
How to reserve a group program
There are two ways to make a reservation request:
Call Explorit at (530) 756-0191
Please have the following information ready:
Contact person's name, telephone number & email address
Organization's name, address & telephone number
Billing address (if different)
Name of program you wish to reserve
Preferred and alternate dates
Desired time (accounting for lunch and recess)
Grade or age of group
Number in group
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 be considered final until you receive an email confirmation from Explorit.
SPECIAL OFFER: SAVE 10%
on program fees for schools that have never used Explorit before
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 online form.
Approvals for fee assistance are limited by availability and must be made separately 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.
Explorit charges full program fees for cancellations within 3 weeks of the scheduled Classroom Adventure or Family Science Night programs. A $72 fee will be charged for Discovery Lesson, Inquiry Lab, or Nature Safari cancellations (or $144 for a combined Discovery Lesson/Nature Safari or Discovery Lesson/Inquiry Lab program) made within 3 weeks of the scheduled program.
For programs receiving fee assistance, cancellations made within 3 weeks of the scheduled program will incur a corresponding cancellation fee.
