Explorer's Club Youth Account for Kids

Start a lifetime of good money management habits by enrolling your kids today!

Explorer’s Club Account Features

An Arbor Financial Explorer's Club Account is the perfect tool for your youth, ages 12 and under, to develop and practice strong saving habits that will last a lifetime.

Explorer's Club Coin Bank

Young savers will receive their own coin bank to learn about savings and store money until it is deposited. 

Passport to Win Program

Saving money can be rewarding and fun for Explorers with our Passport to Win Program! When an Explorer's Club member makes a deposit at one of our branches in-person, they will receive a stamp on their Passport to Savings card. 

When the young saver has filled their card and received five stamps, they can enter to win in our quarterly drawings for $25 deposited in their account*. New Explorers will receive the card at account opening along with a Savings map! Additional cards can be picked up at all Arbor Financial locations. Additional Savings maps can be printed by clicking the button below.
