Looking for a great summer activity for your child? We’ve go you covered. From art to history and science, we work hard to provide fun, educational opportunities for your children all summer long.
We offer a variety of workshops for students, kids, adults, and families! Workshops explore topics in art, photography, geology, and natural science, and include activities that range from hiking and biking to canoeing and camping.
Summer field trips are available for your middle school students, where they observe wildlife, camp in the forest, learn how to explore nature through art, and make new friends! Participants become scientists, contemplate their role in the natural world, develop leadership skills, and learn to solve complex problems.
“We are always looking for innovative ways to get kids outside, learning from the natural world and connecting with one another,” comments Interpretive Specialist and Natural Science Educator Emily Buckles.
