Summer Days

Children learn a love of nature and the outdoors from the adults in their lives. Our group leaders will plan two days of nature activities for you and your special child to explore! Each session has been created to intrigue and challenge children of that age group. Sign your child(ren) up by age group. Activities will be different each year for the age groups to prevent repetition.
Cost: $24 per adult/child member pair, $34 per adult/child non-member pair. Please provide an email so we can send a confirmation letter with additional information about each specific session. Preregistration required. Call 330.359.5235.
