The Highlight of the 2018 Season will be our donation-based, 4 week workshop for children between the ages of 8 and 12 years old (age range is flexible.)
THESE MOUNTAINS WERE MADE WITH WATER!
We are very pleased to deliver this program, based on The Catskills: A Sense of Place developed by, and made available through, the Catskill Center for Conservation and Development. With support materials from Project Wet & Project Learning Tree.
Students will spend the day, 9am - Noon, 5 days a week for 4 weeks (AUGUST 6th - AUGUST 31st) on the ground with hands on activities.
The Workshop is divided into two sessions. The morning session 9-12 inclues NYS Standards based lessons on the followng subjets:
Mondays: WATER RESOURCES Tuesdays: GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY Wednesdays: ECOSYSTEMS Thursdays: HUMAN HISTORY Fridays: CULTURE AND ARTS
Brown Bag Lunch Noon - 1pm
The afternoon session expands the program into a full day. 1pm - 4pm is Students Choice of Activities. We provide ideas from things like "Play the Forest School Way: Woodland Games, Crafts, and Skills for Adventurous Kids"by Peter Houghton & Jane Worroll and other resources, but the class decides by a simple majority.
Space is Limited Pre-registration and Application Required
(Students are encouraged to enroll for the entire 4 weeks but may be excused as necessary)
