Main Street Amherst Explorers Club
Are You Looking For Some Fun Activities To Do With Your Child This Summer? The Main Street Amherst Explorers Club is an opportunity for kids of all ages to get out and explore all that our community has to offer. Complete as many activities as you like from now until August 12. Whether you choose one activity or try to complete them all, the goal is to just have fun! Here’s how it works:

1. Pick up your $5.00 Explorers Club Kit at the Amherst Public Library or the Main Street Amherst Office, Monday-Friday 10 am-2 pm. Kits are limited to the first 200 Explorers.

2. Select an activity. (You do not have to do the activities in order.)

3. When you complete the activity, bring your Adventure Guide, lanyard and proof that you completed the activity (photo, drawing or etc.) to the sponsoring Explorer Station to receive your activity badge. There is a different badge for every activity – no two are alike! (You can only complete each activity once – no double badges).

For the final adventure, come downtown to Walkin on Wednesday on August 12th between 6-8pm. Bring your Adventure Guide, lanyard and your badges to Polly’s Classic Touch Monogramming located at 215 Church Street. Show Polly that you have completed all the activities and you will receive a Bonus Badge and be entered in the Grand Explorers Club Drawing!
