About the Event
Join us for Adventure Days, an exciting full day outdoor program with Storytelling Naturalist Coral Conant Gilles and foraging expert Andy Gricevich of What Got Gathered, LLC!
During Adventure Days, kids in 1st through 5th grade (kindergarteners welcome with supportive older sibling) will explore, play games, and have the opportunity to participate in fun and engaging activities like fire-building, listening to stories, foraging, and tree-climbing. They'll explore the natural world around them, build curiosity, empathy, and imagination, learn wilderness survival skills, and, most of all, have a blast!
Kids can come for Tuesday, Thursday, or both - whatever fits your family's needs! (Tuesday registration is separate.) Andy and Coral appreciate child-led and adult guided adventures. Tuesday and Thursday will be different from each other as we flow with the passions of the kids, natural shifts in plants, animals, and weather, and what feels alive for each of us.
This program is perfect for kids who love playing outside and parents who want a few hours of quiet. Our mentors are experts at creating a safe and supportive environment where kids can build confidence, make new friends, and create lasting memories.
Join us for Adventure Days and let your kids discover the fun and excitement of the great outdoors!
