We’re thrilled to announce Afternoon Adventures Camp, our new, in-person, outdoor program!


Do you know a young person who would love to peer beneath the surface to see what life is like in a nearby stream, eavesdrop on a chatty bird’s conversation, meet the shy critters that hide in the forest or befriend a wise old tree that needs our help – all while making new friends who love the same thing?

When the school day ends, the adventure begins! Through learning with peers about our amazing local native plants and animals, kids grow in their sense of place, sense of self and as stewards of their Earth.

Our staff is seasoned in creating safe outdoor experiences during COVID-19 that encourage kids to exercise their curiosity while stretching their legs in the fresh air.
