StoryWalk® Sundays-August 2022

August 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Our series of StoryWalk® Sunday adventures for kids continues in August.

The story posted on the StoryWalk® trail at Pine Hill Park will change monthly, and plans call for a special event to accompany each one on the second Sunday of each month. This month’s StoryWalk® Sunday is the perfect way to enjoy the summer—what could be more fun than a summer adventure on the water?

Kids will join a guided walk along the story trail as they read the book, then make a special craft project to take home.

The featured storybook for August is “Down to the Sea with Mr. Magee,” by Chris Van Dusen.

“With enough lunch for three, Mr. Magee and his dog Dee head out to the sea. But what begins as a fun day in the sun turns a bit bumpy when one playful whale decides to say hello. Soon the crew that once was floating finds themselves flying! How will they get down? Who will come to their rescue? And when will they ever get to eat lunch? Down to the Sea with Mr. Magee is a great read-aloud, sure to provide fits of giggles.”

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required by August 10. To register, email to: info@natureandcultureinstitute.org or call 717-762-0373. Limited to 20 children. 

Children in grades K–5 may be dropped off and picked up at 3 p.m. All families are welcome, but activities are geared for preschool and elementary age kids.

Stay tuned for future StoryWalk® Sundays!   

Current Covid safety guidelines are being followed.

Pine Hill’s StoryWalk® trail, an Institute project, was funded in part by Summit Endowment, Marge Kiersz and Rouzerville Business Association, with in-kind support from Washington Township, Hopewell Manufacturing, Waynesboro Area School District “Be the Village,” and Alexander Hamilton Memorial Free Library.

Additional support is from The Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund contributors: The Nora Roberts Foundation; The John R. Hershey Jr. and Anna L. Hershey Family Foundation; Alma W. Oyer; APX Enclosures, Inc.; the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family: Carolyn, with daughters Connie Fleagle & Kim Larkin, and an anonymous donor, in honor of the life and work of Eunice Statler. Facility support courtesy of Washington Township.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson.
