What Are Your Summer Plans?

Summer in Vermont is a glorious time to get outside and experience the lovely weather that many hanker for the other 8-9 months of the year. 

We know many parents look forward to these months for the opportunity to slow down and reduce some of the overscheduling that feels unavoidable during the school year. But many of us are here at The Nature Museum are parents too and we remember that these stretches can feel a tad bit too long if we don't build in some experiences that will get kids out of their immediate comfort zone (like their rooms or the couch!)

That's where The Nature Museum comes in! We're thrilled to be offering a range of day camps this summer; we hope that you find something that suits your child. For several, registration is encouraged, especially since several of our programs fill up in advance as camps are limited to 12 kids. Below are dates for the full summer; what adventure awaits your little (or big) kid!

Should you have any questions at all regarding camp or other programs, please reach out to our Education Director, Kimberly O'Connor at kimberly@nature-museum.org. Below we have included an overview of our programs for your convenience. Keep in mind that the museum is also open for visits every Thursday and Saturday from 10-4. And of course, check our full calendar for the very latest happenings! 

Wishing you all a very happy start to your summer!
