2020 Summer Programs

During each enrichment program, youth ages 5-15 (depending on the program) will experience a variety of nature-based science adventures that include: a STEAM curriculum, games, exploration, and discovery, while we encourage values such as teamwork and trust, problem-solving, stewardship, and the core routines of nature connection. All youth need to bring a face mask, morning snack, lunch, and a filled water bottle (bug spray, hat/cap, and sunscreen are optional). Arrowhead and Fossil included in all programs!

Programs are drop off from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Each program is $45.00 and is first come first serve. To register your youth today, please fill out the registration form. The maximum number of youth for all of our programs this summer is 5 children to maintain optimal social distancing and to follow proper state and CDC guidelines for youth programs and camps (see below for additional COVID-19 information).
