Vacation Days at Earthplace are days filled with opportunities for discovery, engineered for ages 3-12. Depending on the season we spend time climbing trees or the rocks at Big Rock Junction, getting to know the Earthpace trails, or perfecting fort-building skills. When inside, students work on age-appropriate nature-based art projects and take time to visit our residents in animal hall. Every vacation day is different depending on the group’s size and input but typically there is time for self-chosen activities, always an animal encounter, with a majority of the day being outside.
If you are spending the day with us please bring a reusable water bottle, lunch, and two snacks. It is also a good idea to bring a change of clothes along with boots and snow gear in colder weather. At Earthplace we are guided by the philosophy that there is no such thing as bad weather if you’re dressed accordingly. Everything should be labeled with your student’s name.
Please note that kids who stay till 1pm will be in a different classroom from those who are with us until 3pm. Register carefully as we do not offer refunds.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email Veronica Swain, Director of Nature Programs.
