SUMMER CAMPS

Come Along Camp for Pre-Schoolers
Some spots still open!

"If a child is to keep his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Outdoor fun and nature adventure await your eager preschooler and a grown-up chaperone of their choice. Through crafts, forest walks, puppet shows, and story time, your youngest camper will learn about the natural world all around them. For ages 2 1/2 through 5. (Only 24 spaces – will sell out fast!)
