Preschool Programs

Little Learners

Explore the scientific wonders of the world with your child! Our parent-and- child classes focus on a scientific theme with exciting hands-on activities and crafts. Each fee covers one Pre-K child (aged 3 to 4)* and one parent or "big buddy" (18 years and older). Additional adults or children must register separately at the full fee.

*Campers must be age 3 by the start of class.


NEWBugs and Botany

Get crawled on by ladybugs, fly through a butterfly’s life cycle, deconstruct a plant, hang out with hissing cockroaches, and more! Get up close and personal with some of our smallest critters as we crawl into the miniature ecosystem of bugs and plants.
