June 14 through August 2, 2019
This popular summer education program provides FREE admission for, and programming geared towards, children ages 12 and younger. We recommend a ratio of no more than 3 kids per adult to ensure a safe and pleasurable experience.
The theme for 2019 is "Summer of Science." Each week will feature a different naturalist talking about the local environment and animals. In addition to the craft rooms, story time, feature film, and naturalist presentation, there will be two labs offered each Friday, giving kids an opportunity to learn how to cast a fishing rod and "read" a fish.
Food will be available for purchase during lunch hours -- pre-registration is encouraged.
