Summer Forest Days 2024

Summer Forest Days is an all-weather, outdoor enrichment program designed to encourage young children to grow socially, emotionally, and physically through interest-led play and natural exploration. Though with guiding themes and activities, our schedule flows organically from what nature presents each day. Children can expect to explore nature by hiking, climbing, water play, observing birds and insects, building with rocks and natural materials, creating art with their discoveries, story-telling, pretend play, gardening and letting their imaginations run free in nature!
