At Earthplace we use our 62-acre wildlife sanctuary as an outdoor classroom. On trail walks through the woods, meadow, stream, and pond, we often spot wildlife in their natural surroundings, including deer, turtles, hawks, wild turkeys and groundhogs. Every week animals from our indoor Animal Hall come to visit. Campers learn about many creatures and their habitats, such as turtles, snakes, frogs, birds, mammals, insects and other wildlife. The themes change every week. There are many opportunities to explore new aspects of nature through hands-on activities, group games, field trips, hikes and crafts. Once a session on Wednesdays, children in grades 1 through 4 go on area field trips, which extends that day until 4:00 p.m. Some weeks our 3rd-4th also go canoeing, ending that day at 4:00 PM. The 5th-7th graders alternate weeks between canoeing and camping overnight at Earthplace. Earthplace offers a number of programs and activities for all ages.
