School’s Out! – February

2/18/19 – 2/22/19

Come discover why winter is a great time to enjoy the outdoors! We will stretch our legs with some snowy treks, construct a cozy ice cave, learn how our native wildlife survives and thrives in the cold, and warm up by an indoor fire after we have some fun on our sledding hill. Join us for some winter-themed adventure!

School’s Out! – April

4/15/19 – 4/19/19

We’ll shake off the winter chills as we defrost with some early spring activities. Campers will get to lend a hand in making maple syrup, help us start seeds for our summer gardens, and search the woods for signs of waking wildlife. Come spring into the outdoor action with us!
