Let your kids be dazzled by dirt and critters, inspired by plants and fresh veggies, and engaged in fun games, crafts and hands-on learning. We'll plant & harvest, cook in our outdoor kitchen and cob oven, build fairy houses, sculpt mud pies, stir up garden potions, care for the chickens, run through the sprinkler and so much more! Come explore the magical wonders of the garden!
Guided by our seasoned Explorers staff, our beautiful campus and one acre organic garden is the perfect setting for young explorers to connect with nature in a safe and nurturing environment.
