Critters of the Cove

Explore the animals that live in our cove forest. Observe butterflies and salamanders, explore the dirt, and pretend to be an animal yourself!  We will also play games that explore what sounds animals make, how they walk, and how they camouflage into their environments.  Imagination will run wild this week as we design and become our own critters, move nectar like bees, build a giant bird’s nest, and make our very own BUGnoculars!

Water Wonders

Discover the wonders of water! We’ll splash in the creek, water the garden, paint with watercolors, and learn about what makes water so unique.  We will explore how water takes the shape of ice, predict what objects will sink or float, and play in the sprinkler. We also explore tie-dying with ice--we will provide everything needed!

Gardening and Farmstead Skills

Let’s dig in the dirt and learn skills to be more sustainable! Join us for a week of planting, eating, and learning around the Farmstead’s Garden.  We will plant a seed to take home and watch grow, design our own gardens, harvest herbs from around the Farmstead, and learn all about composting.  We will also make our own reusable beeswax sandwich wraps, take cuttings of plants to bring home, and paint with berries.
