Welcome

Explorer Hop is an innovative financial literacy and entrepreneurship program based in Toronto, Canada.  Over the last year, more than 3500 students from over 14 countries have been in our programs.  

This is the first step in our 8 level program to teach kids how to invest. 

Please bookmark this page as updates will be provided here. 

Our Camp Millionaire 1 program is designed to teach kids ages 11+ how to invest in the stock market.  Our students learn through hands-on interactive investment games, proactive discussions and collaborative research- all in a stress-free environment. Our programs and students have been recognized and featured on BBC, Global News and much more. 

Financial literacy is a vital skill in our lives and yet so few have it.  By empowering our kids with a good foundation in investing we are enabling our kids to make practical, money-savvy decisions as they prepare for their future. Our program helps put them on this path of success. 

Think about how amazing it will be when your Grade 7 child can look at a company and analyze the stock information for themselves!  This is just the first confident step they take on their investing journey.

Over the course of the next 5 weeks, we will be learning all about the stock market.  They will learn everything from what is Market Cap to Dividends. As we learn, kids will be investing in our Stock Market Challenge, where they will each manage a virtual stock portfolio of $10k with real-time stock market feeds.  The money is virtual but the prices and decisions they make have real-time implications. 

Move over Warren Buffett - our Young Investors are about to take over!
