SUMMER CAMP as it is meant to be...in the wild!
Join us for a very active, hands-on (and messy) summer camp and experience the wonders of our urban garden and Forest Park. We will become nature detectives, investigate the secret world of insects, make mud and slime, create art from nature and explore the wondrous trees and plants and learn camping and adventure skills while making new friends. We'll grow and taste from our garden and cook using the power of the sun and conquer many STEM challenges in our outdoor classrooms.
New theme every two weeks starting July 6th. Two weeks minimum.
See application details and pricing on Parent Information page.
