Looking for a fun, outdoor program for your children for this summer? Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries, Inc. and Cathy Henrich are partnering to offer hands-on activities, crafts, and games centered on the natural environment for children 4-8 years old. Each program will take place at Bourne Farm, the perfect setting for discovering the outdoors. Participants will go on woodland hikes, explore the pumpkin patch, create craft projects to take home, fish from Crocker Pond, and play games of all kinds while simply enjoying the outdoors!

For this session, Outdoor Discoveries is pleased to be educating young children about the importance of providing food sources for local bees. They’ll have a visit from a local beekeeper and plant a bee-friendly flower and herb garden on Bourne Farm. New England artist Patricia Hussey will join the group on the 29th to help design our educational signs for the garden.

All sessions include exploration through literature, arts and crafts, and exploring all Bourne Farm has to offer. Fishing poles will be provided. Children should bring a towel and wear a swimsuit under their clothes for sprinkler time.

Participants are to be dropped off by 9am each day and picked up at 1pm. Children should bring a light snack, lunch, sun block, and bug spray each day.

Cost: $150 per child per session
