Hideout at Powell Gardens: Fort-Building Day Camp
March 18, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until March 22, 2019
Imaginations will run wild at this day camp providing opportunities for first or second graders to design and construct play homes, forts and hideouts during spring break. Each day features a theme focused on the lives of birds, terrestrial insects, mammals, aquatic insects or humans in the gardens.
Activities take place on the Byron Shutz Nature Trail and in some areas that visitors rarely get to explore. Children will investigate Powell Gardens’ resident builders including mammals, birds, insects, and amphibians, and construct play homes for the gardens’ inhabitants indoors and out. Participants should dress in layers for changing weather conditions during the day. Boots or sturdy shoes, coats or heavy jackets, hats and gloves are encouraged.
Daily aftercare is available Monday-Thursday until 5:30 p.m. for $10 per student per day.
