Students will be assigned to an activity group for the day, and can participate in all the Outdoor School activities. Program runs from 10am to 3pm. Each day will conclude with either an open lake time at 2:00 (weather dependant) or a campfire with s'mores at 2:30, followed by pick up at 3:00. Families (parents and younger/older siblings) are invited to join us for these closing activities. 


Parents are invited to attend along with their children, and although we do not require them to be present, are very helpful with younger or more easily-distracted kids. Parents attend for free, as do siblings younger than program age (6-18) if the parent is also present. 


Please pack a lunch or sign up for $10 to recieve lunch from our wonderful cook. We may provide a snack if we're cooking around the fire!
