This program is all about getting comfortable with our “wild” backyard! Children have a natural sense of wonder and during this program they will safely explore and discover nature through stories and their senses. There will be two snack breaks and a lunch break supervised by Abbey Gardens staff. Food is to be provided by parents/grandparents/guardians.
This camp is suitable for children ages 5-6. If your child is turning 5 in 2021, you are welcome to contact us to discuss their suitability for this camp. Please consider their ability to carry out day to day tasks independently. This program runs daily from 9:30am-4pm. Cost is $55 per child, per day ($275 total). This is a fair weather program run entirely outdoors. If we need to cancel day(s) due to inclement weather, we will refund you accordingly.
There are two weeks to choose from: July 5-9 and July 12-16. Please indicate your preference from the drop-down menu.
When you checkout, there’s a section called “Additional Information” with a box entitled “Food Hub Order Pick-up date.” Please write your child(ren’s) name and age in this box.
