Free Outdoor Afterschool Shenanigans

Free afterschool Program for ages 7 - 12.  Come enjoy being outside in the winter at Nolde Forest.  In this program, we will meet in Chickadee Nature Discovery Area across from McConnell Education Center Hall.  Students will have unstructured outdoor play from 3 to 4 PM and then a long, winter hike from 4 to 5 PM.  Please pack a drink and a snack for your camper!  

Parents are welcome to drop their registered child(ren) off and, if you have other students outside of this age range, we invite you to take a separate winter forest hike with them.

This program will take place entirely outside. Please make sure all students are dressed appropriately to spend time outside. **Registration is required for ALL participants. Spaces are limited. Due to the increasing popularity of our programming and the growing number of people on the waitlist for programs, we require a 24-hour cancellation notice for all programs. This will allow us time to reach out to other participants/families on the wait list and allow them to fill your spot. Individuals who repeatedly do not cancel before the program and who repeatedly do not show up to the program will be prohibited from signing up for future programs.

** Register by clicking the green button in the upper righthand corner. *This program will only be cancelled in case of rain or severe inclement weather. Please check your email to receive any cancellation updates.
