When school is out, Pre-K & K kids can keep learning and have fun too! Children will explore TNC woods and trails, make crafts, share stories and play games while learning about the environment.
Spring-themed activities may include exploring the pond ecosystem, eating s’mores around the campfire on Friday, meeting our animal ambassadors up close and more. Sign up early. Don't let your child miss out on fun, hands-on nature experiences, outdoor discovery, and the chance to explore our native hardwood forest and pond ecosystems.
Please double check your child's school calendar for which days they have off! Town vacation days may vary.
5 Full Days $325
5 Half Days $175
Each Half Day $40
Full day is 9:00-3:30 pm
Half days are 9:00-12:30pm or 12:00-3:30pm
