Who's Been Here? (for children ages 5 to 8)

Is your child suffering from cabin fever?  Then this program is the answer! Winter is a fabulous time to explore the grounds in search of signs that animals leave behind.  In this one-day winter mini-camp, participants will not only learn how to identify what animal left the sign, but they will also be able to tell a story describing what it was doing.  The day will include games, crafts and stories and promises to be a cure for those winter blues!  Registration is required.
