Our Vacation Day programs are 1/2 day programs for students to explore, through hands-on activities and plenty of outdoor fun, nature and natural phenomena. Designed like a typical summer camp day, students will learn about a topic through science, art, games, and more. Each program stands alone, though students are welcome to join us for more than one theme. Programming appropriate for children in grades k-5.
Each Vacation Day program requires pre-registration- including complete student paperwork (see registration form at the bottom of the page).
