2023 SpringBreak Nature Camp!
Our Spring Break Nature program for children currently in 1st-5th grade runs during the week when many schools are closed for spring break. Our beautiful 152 acre property features a historic main building, covered pavilion, picnic grove, recreation field, hiking trails, gardens and a stream.
Each day incorporates fun and immersive experiences and a variety of nature-focused activities, to enhance your child’s enjoyment and understanding of the nature world around them. Crafts and games will focus on ecology, science, flora and fauna and the environment, and will incorporate the natural surroundings. Each day will be spent outside.
If you have older children, check out our Emerging Ecologists programs grades 6th-9th!
Spring Exploration: Plants, Animals, Weather and Water!
Regrowth & Rebirth! Campers will explore some of the most distinctive signs of spring, including wildflowers, spring ephemerals, and flowering trees during forest hikes. We'll use plants for craft inspiration, plant seeds and prepare our garden areas, learn about food cycles and play some fun plant-themed games.
Water! Campers will learn about the changing seasons and the role of our watershed by exploring the Blue Mine Brook, vernal pools and our raingarden, and conduct water testing experiments.
All About Animals! We'll enter the world of animals as we learn about their big jobs that happen every spring, including migration and reproduction, and learn how to observe, identify, track and inhabit the world of our local wildlife.
Note: the activities will vary to accommodate the weather and site conditions.
