SWAMP SCHOOL
Picking up where Trail Time for Toddlers leaves off, Swamp School continues nature-based education for kids ages 6-10. With more of a focus on science content, we will explore
the outdoors, do arts and crafts, meet interesting animals and have healthy snacks. This is a perfect opportunity for homeschool parents to supplement their science education curricula in a natural setting. The program is held four times a month and themes change each class. Child must be accompanied by an adult. Registration for each month begins on the 1st of the month prior.
