Trekkers & Explorers After-School Program (Spring 2020)

March 11 @ 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:00 PM on Wednesday, repeating until June 3, 2020

North Branch Nature Center, 713 Elm Street
Montpelier, Vermont 05602
$425

Let your kids be kids on Wednesday afternoons at NBNC. Our Explorers (1st - 3rd grade) and Trekkers (4th - 8th grade) programs offer kids time to explore the woods and fields, play stealth and awareness games, and learn outdoor skills with their peers. One week your child might forage for wild edibles and cook over an open fire, while the next week might find them deep in the woods, building shelters, and using the local landscape to practice outdoor living skills such as tracking and fire-starting. Thoughtful and loosely directed play in the woods helps kids develop a sense of place while unwinding with a peer group.
