These questions and more will be explored by our youngest learners. There are three weeks to choose from (June 19-July 7, excluding the July 4 holiday), each with a theme, but filled with outdoor activities, hands on learning, art, movement, and more! Families can choose from half days or full days, one week or more! Registration and information on pricing can be found at Eventbrite.
