Enjoy your February vacation in Maine the way it should be – by celebrating the many ways we take learning outside. We have packed three days with exciting opportunities to learn how humans and other living things survive our wonderful winter months. All days include outdoor time, stories, games and hands-on explorations of the natural world. Visit for one day or come for the full session! Please dress for cold weather.

Tuesday

Snow Science – We will explore the world of snow and ice in the field, forest and streams. We will make our own crystals and discover the insulating power of snow while learning how life on earth survives and thrives when it is cold.

Wednesday

Travel and Survival in Nature - Fly, hop and crawl your way through the grounds at Fields Pond while learning how seeds and animals move. Campers will perform hands-on experiments to discover how plants and animals survive the Maine winter.

Thursday

Winter Birds - Which birds will we find at our feeders and in the forest this time of year? Join us as we observe Maine’s winter birds and their habitat. We will dissect owl pellets, make bird feeders participate in the 2017 Great Backyard Bird Count.
