Intrepids is much more suitable for children. Explorer is very small and much more exclusive. Neither the children nor the other guests would enjoy the experience! there are safety issues at Explorer too.

Jane, the manager is very good so maybe their internet is down. I suggest you contact Mara Intrepid which is the bigger sister camp close by, and ask them to help.
