The "rainbow" craft was fantastic. We arrived really late so this was the only one my daughter did, she was allowed and helped by very kind and helpful volunteers to take materials home to finish them. Thank you Shelly and 2 Bevs and everybody else! You make us look forward to our Wednesdays all Summer!

This party stunk! I drove with 4 kids from NYC . It was late and dark and we were spooked, but excited to look through the telescopes before our trip to the poconos. NOONE was there. The forest ranger didn't know what we were talking about except to say that there had been a star party on Thursday prior. We kept our kids out late for nothing. Note this is more of a review of the calendar than the event. We were pissed

The theme was Where the Wild Things Are. I thought sewing project was too difficult for my 6 yo but the other 3 were wonderful!

As always, fantastic craft ideas. My daughter painted a bee, made a bug catcher necklace, shells on the beach, and a wind chime.

Absolutely loved every minute of it. I brought my daughter and her friend both are 6. The volunteers guided them step by step in very caring and friendly manner. This is our second season. Hope to attend all the sessions.

A good time was had by all - and all the captured Salamanders and Newts were soon released, all unharmed. :) A good time was had by all - and all the captured Salamanders and Newts were soon released, all unharmed. :)
