Summer Wonder Bugs

If you would like to be added to our email list and receive information on program registration as it becomes available, please click here.

What you can expect this summer at Wonder Bugs:

  • Hand and surface sanitizers, as well as soap and water, will be readily available.
  • Any tools that we use (for example, magnifiers) will be thoroughly sanitized before and after use.
  • The focus will be on discovery as we use our senses to explore the grounds of ALNC, and learning through songs, stories, movement, and play, related to each week’s theme.
  • The WBs leader will be masked. Wonder Bugs participants and caregivers should be prepared to wear a mask in accordance with our mask policy.
  • A simple, nut-free snack will be provided. It will either be commercially pre-packaged or prepared in sanitary conditions and served in individual portions. Participants are also welcome to bring a snack from home.
  • Please bring your own water bottle.
  • In the case of seriously inclement weather (eg. thunderstorms, heavy rain, high winds) we will cancel WBs for the day and let you know in a timely manner. Otherwise, come prepared with light rain gear, waterproof footwear, sun hats, sunscreen, insect repellent, and anything else you might need for a fun outdoor adventure.
  • While there will be summer camps for older children happening simultaneously at a reduced capacity in separate spaces around ALNC, the building itself will remain closed to the public so that outside traffic will be diminished.
