Our 102-acre outdoor classroom, with its woodlands, wetlands, meadows,
pastures, and barnyard, will be ours to explore! Every morning will be filled to the brim with hands-on outdoor adventures based on the theme of the day.

Search the stream for crayfish, explore the pond for tadpoles, get up close and personal with our turtles, frogs and other program animals, build survival shelters, learn about woodland Indians, visit with our farm animals, plant and harvest in the gardens, do some nature crafting, play fun conservation games, and so much more. This summer program includes two opportunities to swim in our crystal-clear pool, under the supervision of a lifeguard. Young explorers will leave us as nature detectives and nature defenders!

All programs are designed to be held outside (rain or shine), however in the event of extreme weather we will move inside to large well-ventilated spaces that allow for social distancing.

Each week is $275 per member, $325 per non-member
