The Institute Presents All New Fall EXPLORE! Programs for Kids

EXPLORE! programs are a series of outdoor adventure programs.

The Institute is offering a series of four outdoor adventure programs this fall. Designed for kids in grades K to 5, the EXPLORE! programs will run on four consecutive Thursdays, October 6, 13, 20 & 27, after school from 4 to 5 p.m. at Pine Hill Recreation Area in Waynesboro, Pa.

Taught by Institute educators, each program includes educational activities related to the season.­­ All program activities are outside. 

This third autumn EXPLORE! session is Fall Fun & Fort Building. This program introduces STEM concepts. Students will enjoy a seasonal nature book, then go on a guided “wondering walk” through the forest. Finally, students will work together with others to build a lean-to structure with natural materials.

Space is limited; pre-register at 717-762-0373 or via email at [email protected].
Sign up for any or all of the individual sessions.

Fee: Single Session: $5 Institute member/$6 general public. 

Check out the last two programs in this EXPLORE! series—these are new dates due to a weather-related cancellation:
October 27–Amazing Leaves!
November 3—All About Pumpkins 

EXPLORE! programs are sponsored by The Anderson Family Fund, in memory of Vida Mae Anderson.
