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.
Explorers is the Auckland Branch of the national body, New Zealand Association for Gifted Children (NZAGC). We are nonprofit and run entirely by volunteers.
