Forest Programming provides nature-based learning opportunities for children to engage in a self-guided exploration of the forest, helping develop their curiosity, critical thinking, and sense of connection with nature. Our highly-trained instructors use positive reinforcement to build empathy and communication about the natural world.
This summer, we will provide Forest Programming for 9 weeks. We will not only offer morning and afternoon sessions for each age group, but also an ALL-DAY option for Forest Explorers and Adventurers.
Forest Adventurers (children ages 8 to 12 years old) will be based at the DCR Flynn Rink location one mile down the road at 300 Elm Street in Medford.
Expectations in participating include unstructured play in the Fells, educational discussion on the botany and animals of the Fells, scavenger hunts, and more!
