Fall Program Update:
Like many of you, we have been working hard to make new plans for fall. We recognize that most schools in our area are starting the year off with virtual learning, and many families are looking for safe and healthy activities for their kids as a supplement to this. We have announced a brand new program offering, Nature School, that will allow us to engage children across our community with the wonders of nature in a safe environment, while also providing parents and teachers with additional resources. Make sure you’re signed up for our e-blasts, follow us on social media and please stay tuned to this page for more information in the coming weeks as we continue to develop creative solutions to provide enriching outdoor learning opportunities for children and their families.
To add your email address to our mailing list, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For general info or particular questions about individual programs, please contact email@example.com.
Your child has off of school – now what? Bring them for a day of exciting learning and adventure at one of our Vacation Day programs! Offered during winter break, spring break, and other major vacation days that many area school districts have off, these programs are a perfect way to keep your child engaged on their days off!
All vacation day programs are drop-off programs appropriate for children ages 5-12 years. Please bring a sack lunch for all full-day programs! AM and PM snacks are provided. Scholarship funds may be available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability or to request an application.
